Ok
The podcast gives a slightly different insight into Japanese culture. Quite good actually, but when Chris has ads on his YouTube channel ok, but you’d think Chris wouldn’t be so needy to earn a Buck, but ads at the beginning, several in the middle and then at the end is a bit much. I suppose with...Read full review »

This podcast is so amazingly written and produced; I also just love your YouTube channels.

Got to know few months back that one of my favourite YouTubers has a podcast. But never bothered to listen. Must say I have been a fool to not do it. Excellent content. Always looking forward to the next one. Let me now focus on the huge backlog of podcasts😃

I cannot recommend this podcast enough. If you want to know more about Japan, give it a try.

If you are a Japanophile and you haven’t been listening to the Abroad in Japan podcast, boy have you been missing out! Chris and Pete banter amongst themselves while discussing the latest goings on in Japan. Get insight into Chris’ life as a YouTuber in Japan and stories from Pete’s crazy...Read full review »

Absolutely worth the listen every time! Love it and keep it up!

Not enjoying it as much since Pete has come back.

“Hey get away from me! This is a launderette, not a bordello, madam,” is possibly the best thing I’ve heard on a podcast. I’m not actually planning a trip to Japan in the next several years but I love to listen because the hosts are so great, especially Pete. Sorry Chris, but sometimes you need...Read full review »

I’m American living in Japan and I soooo love this podcast. Chris and Pete are very entertaining and cover so many funny topics. It’s my favorite one :)

Great podcast and wonderful companion content to YouTubes abroad in Japan

Why don’t you upload these to another channel in you tube? Monetise. I know you didn’t video them but you can get a graphic designer to do cartoon of Pete and Chris. They are informative for people planning to go to Japan

On YouTube and this pod, Chris and his motley band of friends - the amazing Pete- always take me with them on their adventures! While driving or hanging out wherever, I’m always entertained! Thank you for your creative gifts! Thank you for bringing Japan to my home! 😊

I’ve been interested in Japan for years and I love Chris’s YouTube channel - Abroad In Japan. This podcast was a bonus discovery a few months ago. Chris and Pete are both excellent broadcasters with great chemistry. Their description of Japan is always respectful and always entertaining. How they...Read full review »

Thanks Chris and Pete for keeping me entertained.
Shellbo_peep via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/21/22
I gave the show a good try, did about 25-30 episodes… Unfortunately I find the show childish and not very informative. I’ve been to Japan 14 times in the last 12 years and I was surprised by how little the hosts actually have in the way of insight when it comes to Japan and it’s people and...Read full review »

What can I say, two legends entertaining us on a regular basis. Love the show, banter and contents. Dying to get back to Japan and it’s great to get the drip feed on a bi-weekly basis. Keep it up guys, love it.

I have always been a massive fan of Chris Broad and his YouTube Channels. He never ceases to amaze me and make me laugh with his awesome photography skills and his funny sense of Humour. Being a huge fan of Japan, this podcast has got to be my favourite! With Pete Donaldson and his innocent...Read full review »

Recently feels back to its best, not as many ads and more enjoyable content.
NutsNGum via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/29/21
Don’t understand why Pete (the loud mouth liberal) is on the show. The show is called Aboard in JAPAN … not Updates from the UK. Really enjoy the episodes when you have actual people who lives in Japan on your show. Too bad that doesn’t happen very often.
Kaiwen Tsang via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/21
I’ve been a subscriber to Abroad in Japan since 2016 and I was surprised to know that he started his own podcast a few years ago. Since Day 1, it’s been an incredibly enjoyable podcast! I always learn something new every time I listen to an episode. Chris and Pete have great chemistry which makes...Read full review »
FatalShot009 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/21
This podcast has gradually become more about Pete’s leftist political views than Japan. Every topic Chris brings up Pete turns into a political discussion. Give it a rest. People who listen to this podcast LIKE Japan and don’t need to hear Pete constantly bashing it and its people and culture....Read full review »
Jason Bartlett via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/09/21
As a long time subscriber of Chris' channel, I decided to give this podcast a try. It does mirror Chris' videos in a lot of ways, often being funny whilst still remaining informative. The problems arise when you take into account the co-host. Pete has had some funny moments on the...Read full review »

I love love LOVE the energy and dynamic between Chris and Pete, and their funny banter and the guests they invite onto the show sometimes. Having two episodes a week is super awesome because I have something to look forward to every few days. I’ve even gone as far back almost all the way when I’m...Read full review »

Been listening to this pair of muppets for 3 years or more, cannot remember, but the best podcast out there!

Do you like Chris Broad’s, Abroad in Japan, YouTube channel? Do you like the voice of Peter Donaldson, famous Japanophile and incredible podcast host? Well you’re gonna love this podcast! Keep it up gents!
Justinian920 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/31/21
I really liked the podcast. But at some point the ads started to get really annoying and I had to stop to listen because al of the fun and entertainment was suddenly gone when an ad started and I could no fast enough reach for the skip button because I was busy or had my hands full at work....Read full review »

If you love watching Abroad in Japan, the podcast doesn’t disappointment ! Pete is an amazing co-host, always find myself laughing to myself when I’m out for a walk and listening to this podcast. Great way to get your Japan fix, especially right now with constant lockdowns. I always look...Read full review »

I remember listening to the first few episodes of this podcast. Originally thinking “it’s just gonna be the same as all the others.” But boy was I wrong. Truthfully, this is the only podcast that I have ever listened to that makes me burst out in laughter randomly. They connections between Chris...Read full review »

Don’t listen to the haters this is one of the best podcast’s out there.

Just found your podcast and thought I’d give it a go. I am LOVING it! Reminds me of my days teaching on the JET Programme. Keep up the awesome job!
CaliforniaDreaming123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/21
Pls use Pete 2.0 more often! Like maybe every week.
dflkjnvbfgkj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/21
Long time listener. I’ve always enjoyed your episodes. British authentic Pete is great and I love him but I’m a big fan of American Pete! His positive vibe (and amusingly sarcastic) lightened up my day!
Berrie R.T. via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 09/30/21
I love the YT channel and I suddenly realized after rewatching the first Journey Across that there was a podcast and I wasn’t listening to it. A great combination of casual chat, social commentary and complete weirdness from Real Actual French Man. Very relaxed friendly listening. Also the worlds...Read full review »

It’s like Jesus himself caressing your ears with sensual whispers so hot as if there was just simply too much volcano
GlenWeezyGHomieDawg via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 09/21/21
I just love listening to these guys. I love the research they do to bring unique and interesting stories from Japan, as well as answering questions and reacting to listener stories. It’s great fun every time!
Englann via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/21
I enjoyed this podcast for quite a while. However it’s now seemingly become a soap box for one of the presenters to blather on insufferably about social justice, at any given opportunity. Unfollowed, perhaps if they focus on entertainment might pick it back up.
joseppi joseppivich via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/22/21
Chris and Pete have taught me so much about Japan. Super chill vibes and the only podcast that has managed to make me literally laugh out loud. Highly recommended for anybody to loves Japan or honestly anybody looking for a nice laugh.
sakaseyou via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/15/21
I like chill and entertaining chatting
Sergeyyyyyyyyyyyyy via Apple Podcasts · Norway · 08/10/21
Pretty offensive when Pete referred to his own ‘white privilege’ being in Japan. Really gross, it’s 2021.
john nyc16 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/03/21
It's simple, easy and interesting to follow. Two guys chatting, no manual required. I'm been listening for Chris and Pete for quite a while now, they have always been interesting. I hope these guys keep it up for many years to come.Read full review »

Highly entertaining podcast! I love the banter between Chris and Pete. They are respectful of Japan but also don’t shy away from talking about real issues.
