The Japanofiles Podcast
Welcome to the Japanofiles, a podcast about Japan. This podcast, which began in 2009, presents interviews that have been recorded in Japan. Most of the interviewees are English-speaking foreign residents of Nagano Prefecture who live in the greater Matsumoto area. They share their stories about living and working in Japan. The host of this Japan podcast, Dave Carlson, is a long-time resident of Matsumoto.

For today's Japanofiles Podcast, Dave talks with Wayne Douglas, a New Zealander currently residing in Matsumoto. Wayne recently launched a Japanese and English bilingual website devoted to raising awareness about benzodiazepine drugs. Wayne's story has been featured in The Japan Times, the Yomiuri Newspaper, and the New Zealand Herald.
