  1. I have been a History of Japan Pod fan for ages, I have just started listening to Criminal Records Podcast. I just finished listening to this episode. I was laughing all the way though. You two are amazing together. Your interactions are amazing. All the episodes I have to listened to so far have been thoroughly interesting, informative and fun but this one, best so far. I could listen to you two making a shopping list
