Always entertaining and filled with fun and exciting stories from the fax machine! Great work!

Don’t understand why Pete is on the show. The show is called Aboard in JAPAN … not Updates from St. Albans.

Love hearing from these guys.

Such a funny podcast I love how you guys answer fan questions, I bashed through all of the episodes in 1 and a half months does that make me a Certified Japanophile?

Awesome podcast, really like the Chris accent.
tienpham14292 via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 05/10/21
Honestly I’ve had enough of this guy, and I came to this podcast from the football ramble. He isn’t made for podcasting, he can barely get a coherent sentence out its the most tedious thing to listen to I pretty much just skip ahead whenever he talks. I’m not a very political person but it’s...Read full review »

I enjoy the show but I really have to sift through episodes of wealthy white men who have moved to Tokyo mostly because they can. There are so many people of different genders and sexualities and races and quite frankly it’s getting stale for me. I’d love for you to dig outside your circle and...Read full review »

My name is Victor Mejia from Honduras. I must admit I’m absolutely hooked. The information about japan is great and hilarious thanks to both hosts. Chris is just legendary on the Japanese subject matter, his videos are awesome and next to Pete they make this podcast a must listen every week. Keep...Read full review »

An interesting show covering a range of topics. Sometimes it’s difficult understanding the fast paced British accents. Wish they would pronounce some of the Japanese words correctly. And other times there is too much silliness by Donaldson.

I enjoy learning about Japan without having to be in Japan. I like listening to them during work.

Great. Listened to every episode since the start. But since going to 2 a week I’ve started to skip some as I can’t keep up with other podcasts I’m listening to, so fallen out the habit a bit. Once you’ve missed one, it’s easier to miss more sort of thing. But enjoy it when I listen.
Taylor Guy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/13/21
Just stupid upon stupid upon stupid Christianity and suicide is a sin??!! Huh? We’re talking of Japan So making suicide not a sin makes it less likely??!??! But Japan isn’t Christian and suicide has always been prevalent And saying that women choose to be single because marriage is hard on...Read full review »

Chris is hilarious, should attempt stand up one day. Pete is a good broadcaster. They discuss compelling topics about life and Japan and riff and all sorts of things. Super enjoyable and you’ll look forward to each new episode. Check out the Abroad in Japan YouTube channel and patreon for more...Read full review »

Chris and Pete are very funny together and have a great rhythm and flow to their podcast. If you’re at all interested in visiting Japan or Japanese modern culture, this is a fantastic podcast to subscribe to!
MH from PDX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/21
i love this podcast. I always listen to it. I am from Buenos Aires and I travel to Japan whenever I can. Thank you ! ♥️♥️
Poli Zeta via Apple Podcasts · Argentina · 03/28/21
Listening for years and still fresh. I highly recommend it, and if you join Chris’s YouTube channel you’ll have the perfect combo for a Japan lover!
karsa737 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 03/17/21
Always very entertaining and educational. Makes long, boring nights of building automobiles on an assembly line more a little more tolerable. I’ve listened to several podcasts and watched many YouTube channels related to Japan. If you’re considering moving to Japan or just want to learn about...Read full review »

These guys know their thing about fax machines.
keiraarts via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/07/21
This show is so fun! I’ve watched Chris Broad’s YouTube channel for years, and this podcast is just as good and very funny. I love hearing stories from listeners as well. 🇯🇵
jalapeno_bizz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/21
I’ve been listening to this show since the early days and I still absolutely love it. Great perspective, interesting personalities and quality content.
Nategear via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/19/21
If you’re looking for a mediocre examination of life in Japan from a foreigner’s perspective then yeah this is okay I guess. Don’t expect to learn about Japanese culture or traditions—this isn’t the podcast for it. Having listened to all episodes Chris’ entire spiel is “haha Japanese people...Read full review »

I love this perspective of life in Japan.
MedicMom2022 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/21
I lived in Tokyo for 7 years so listen to this for nostalgic purposes. Chris is a great host and I discovered this podcast through his Youtube videos which are often laugh out loud and very entertaining. 2 things which would make me give this podcast 5 stars: 1- get rid of Pete, he stumbles on...Read full review »
CJ Tokyo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/07/21
Huge Chris fan. Watched his youtube channel since the beginning and this podcast is a great extension of that. Pete is really fun too. That being said, i LOVED when other great jvloggers like Sharla did some episodes. I would love if other youtubers showed up as guests more often along with Pete....Read full review »

I like Pete’s style and energy. He makes it even more fun
Elena VN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
It’s a lovely show to listen to while I work or if I haven’t fulfilled my daily laugh quota for the day. It’s also really relatable for anyone who has struggled to learn a new language.
unoffensivenickname via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/31/21
You lose your audience when you start lying to them and lose their trust. The whole Pete is on vacation we’re giving Pete the week off is it set up is clearly a lie. Podcasts listeners are invested in the topic and the hosts, tell us the truth, people are not stupid and it’s condescending to set...Read full review »

The chicken-boy and the Coolish-man does a great job to entertain. And you will learn a thing or two as well.
Guguchan via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 01/26/21
Great podcast! Especially when you’re as sad and lonely as I am!
MikeMurdok via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/21
I used to listen when they first started the podcast as I watch Chris on YouTube but I just don't care for the podcast. There's not enough about Japan and more him and Pete rambling on about whatever. I had stopped listening for a few months when I heard Sharla was a guest on and enjoyed...Read full review »
SarahMackenzie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/21
I always loved Chris’ YouTube channel. In a world of over earnest trust fund baby traveloguers treating Japan like a precious object that would crumble at the slightest sideways Western gaze, it is really refreshing to have a snarky sarcastic Brit give his plain talking impression of Japan while...Read full review »

Pete brings the show alive
Cmdprompt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/27/20
Helps keep things ticking over until I’m allowed to go back to Japan. Love it
Mike64739637 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/18/20
Am a big fan of Chris’ YouTube channels. His conversations with Pete are fantastic. It runs like the 3 of us are catching up like old friends: very casual, hilarious, and educational! 5/5
ANerdReview via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/20
This podcast I found by chance when looking for something to listen to, travel related. What I would find, is a highly entertaining and easy to listen to podcast. Not going to lie, this is my go to when doing dishes. The stories, commentary and answered questions are good fun and make me want to...Read full review »

I love this show and the YouTube channel ♥️ best show about Japan
MariaShira81 via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 12/15/20
I like the show but sometimes Pete chimes in with his political views and it’s really annoying
salad senpai via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/20
Walk 6 miles listening to a few of these a couple of times a week. Makes me want to visit Japan when this is all over.

Really funny but also informative.
Atrophy Wife via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/20
Just as a personal thought, chris should have a show more like his YouTube live stream where it’s just him talking about stuff in japan. Tbh I don’t really like Pete, I listen to the show for Chris. Pete doesn’t really give any value inputs, also I just prefer to listen Chris’s voice. Then you...Read full review »

I love the YouTube channel and so I was so excited to come across his podcast.
campiberger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/04/20
I have stopped listening as I got tired of Pete’s abrasive, opinionated style. Chris brings all the interesting facts and stories about Japan while Pete just stinks the place up with his uninformed opinions about all manner of topics foreign and domestic. It’s such a turnoff I have finally given...Read full review »

Used to love this podcast and while the content is still good there's just so many ads now. They have four in a row in the middle of the show along with the ones at the begining. Half the running time seems to be ads now. I get it's free content but there's a limit surely?Read full review »

Chris’ podcast is entertaining and full of great information and banter with a splash of humor thrown in for good measure. I love his YouTube channel and was super happy to discover his podcast!
