Tokyo Podcast 35: Bobby Judo

Many foreigners come to Japan with dreams of becoming a TV or movie celebrity, believing in the outdated myth that being a caucasian foreigner in Japan is the easy ticket to fame and riches. My guest today is Bobby Judo who hosts his own cooking segment on a local Japanese television network and what is particularly interesting about Bobby’s story is how he managed to get his cooking show on Japanese TV.

I am also joined by Jacqueline Wein who is an antiques dealer and design historian who runs a popular website about the vibrant antique markets here in Tokyo. She joins us to talk about the rare and interesting items that can be found at the many local markets.
