AFTER JET PODCAST

The After JET podcast features a series of discussions with the JET alumni community, on things such as careers after JET, projects and life in general.

Our stories begin with "This one time in Japan..." - our best, our silliest and our fondest.

 

The After JET is hosted by Eden Law (and occassionally David Reiling), both ex-JETs located in Sydney, Australia. If you have a story, please get in touch! Find us and subscribe on Soundcloud and iTunes. Below is a selection of stories - from the funny, the bizarre and inspiring.

Continuing with the theme about the meandering path of life, our guest has certainly done her fair share of travelling and career paths (diving instructor, tour manager and marketing director, recruitment) and now currently runs a non-profit greenhouse program in a converted ice hockey stadium in Canada, in a town located in the Arctic Circle - making her the northern-most guest to appear on this podcast. She also tells some pretty funny stories about navigating the health system in Japan, so brace yourself. Footnotes

Episode 24

More information for this episode


Tourism is one of those careers that is a good fit for JETs - after all, we are passionate advocates for our second homes in Japan, and have explored every nook and cranny, probably more so than locals who have lived there all their lives. Continuing with the theme of ex-JETs who now work in the Japanese public sector, we'll be speaking to our guest, Andy Coombs, who currently works for the Fukushima City Tourism and Convention Association. He'll talk about what's involved, the challenges, his ambitions for Fukushima tourism, the benefits of selectively and softly applying the gaijin-smash approach, and of course, since we're both ex-JETs from Fukushima, we'll be shamelesly flying the flag and showing much rabu-rabu (love) for the best little prefecture in Japan. A mild language advisory warning since we (ok me) will be swearing just a teeny-tiny bit. Andy manages the following official Fukushima Tourism social media channels - website, Facebook and Instagram.
We mentioned several places of interest on the podcast:

  • Iwaki, because it rocks

We head to the arts for our next theme, with our guest, filmmaker Gavin Hugh. In addition, we'll be getting into some political discussions, as Gavin also works for a member of the Scottish parliament, making this episode feel totally like, real grown-up and stuff. Film, politics and Scottish independence - what more could you want?
