We’re b-b-b-b-back! Turns out sitting on a beanbag to record a podcast isn’t the best idea.

In this long-awaited returning episode we delve into the legal grey areas of craft beer in Japan. Homebrewing and growlers, to be precise. Joe spends all his money at a festival. Rob sleeps in a field.

Joe Robson

Pompous elitist and professional space beast Joe lives down by the beach in Shonan. He listens to podcasts almost constantly. He's listening to one now. He bought an Arduino but doesn't know what to do with it. He recently ate a cricket and would do it again. Never give him a Belgian beer. He'll die.
