Welcome to Sensei and The Geek. This is the home of the Sensei and The Geek podcast. The podcast is hosted by Rob and Jay, two Canadian guys who have been living in Japan long-term. In their podcasts they interview various people related to Japan, give their old-timer's perspective on things Japanese, talk about current events in Japan, and talk about tech.

Discussions include timely topics in Japan like current holidays and news, the Japanese word of the day, and they try to tell each other something they didn't know about Japan. Guests are a large part of the podcast, are a wide-range of people from different professions and countries, who have some relevance to Japan, whether they be currently or previously living in japan, or even just visiting.

Make sure to check out the podcasts. You can also find Sensei and The Geek on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And if you have feedback to give, questions to ask, or just want to chat in general, then feel free to talk on the forums, or comment on the blogs!

Happy listening!
