JJ Walsh hosts a daily podcast talkshow, Seeking Sustainability Live, featuring guests whose work relates to Japan. The archives are a trove of information about all things environment-and-Japan-related. Check out the audio page here. She also broadcasts live on YouTube, where you can watch this video she put together including photos from my travels and images from the book.

Excited to see Eating Wild Japan on Kinokuniya’s list of popular new releases for March, as well as on Books on Asia’s list of “9 New and Upcoming Releases We’re Looking Forward to Reading.” It’s in good company with fellow Stone Bridge Press author Robert Whiting, whose book Tokyo Junkie is on my own (very long) to-read list.
