Episode 34 is taking a little longer than usual to write, record, and edit, but we truly hope it will be worth the wait. It's the first in a 3 part series that we are very excited to share with you. Stephen has been working at the Yamatozakura shochu distillery in Ichiki, Kagoshima, every fall for almost a decade and we've decided to try take you on a journey through a day in the life of the distillery. Narrated by Rich Pav of Uncanny Robot.
The series will be broken into three parts:
Morning the workday starts at 5am with a break at noon.
Afternoon from 12:30pm to 6:30pm before a break for dinner.
Night 8pm to 1am or later.
In the meantime, we recommend you listen to our back catalogue, particularly these episodes are they are directly related to the next 3.
Episode 3. Introducing Japanese Shochu
Episode 14. The Smelly, Wonderful World of Sweet Potato Shochu
Until next week, please enjoy.
