‘The Week’ Podcast #19: Learn about the new SDG website, Awamori culture and mark the end of WWII

You’re the reason JAPAN Forward launched The Week – a podcast for busy people who want to keep up to date with Japanese culture, politics, business, economics and research, as well as sports. Hosted by Arielle Busetto.

In our nineteenth episode, we highlight the 77th anniversary of the end of World War II and our reporting from the field.

Next, we’ll dive into an exciting new website ー Japan 2 Earth ー dedicated to issues and debates around the environment and the SDGs, published under the umbrella of JAPAN Forward.

Further, we examine the ancient and popular culture of Awamori liquor in Okinawa. And in sports, we’re aiming for the stars with a profile on basketball player Rui Machida. Find the list of related articles below.

Join us wherever you get your podcasts – on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Podcasts or directly through our website at JAPAN Forward. Contact us and stay in touch on Twitter @ariellebusetto.

New podcasts will be released every weekend and will remain available to listeners on your own schedule.

We have a library of podcasts available on our homepage, including Real Issues, Real Voices, Real Japan ー in English and Japanese ー and Sports Talk.
