Episode 11 – Ghosts, Trains and Jet Lag

Halloween in Shibuya has made international headlines – and it was awesome to get to be a part of the crowd!  (Yes, that’s me in the picture above with my tail between my legs.  If you’re reading these show notes on Stitcher or in a podcasting app, head over to GoneJohn.com to see what I’m talking about!)

On this episode of the show, we will talk more about the craziness of Halloween in Japan and how it’s just starting to become a big deal.

Also on this episode of the podcast, we talk about the great, vertically integrated Japanese railway companies which are less about being in the transportation business and more about diversifying to be part of someone’s entire life.  It really is astonishing how wide their business models are.

Patricia asked a question about jet lag.  For more on the topic, check out this recent blog post of mine.

Also, Jennifer was wondering if I’ll ever do more episodes of Boarding Call.  Yes – I will, but for now I’m focusing on this project.
