Having lived in various parts of North America, Europe and Asia, Anthony now calls Japan home and can be heard every week on the GPod podcast.

About GPod Contributor Reno J. Tibke:
Reno is a pathologically tech-obsessed purveyor of multi-format Technosnark©®™ who's been bouncing back and forth from the U.S. to Japan for 13 years. He's an Editor & Content Curator at AkihabaraNews, and if you really want to know more about that guy, jump through to his bio

About GaijinPot:
For those abroad who might not be hip, GaijinPot is the portal for jobs, studying, and travel in Japan; statistically speaking, it's safe to say that pretty much all non-Japanese job seekers in Japan have browsed GaijinPot or posted a resume/CV on the site.
