Tokyo Tales - The Simon and Martina Podcast
Summary: We're Simon and Martina. We run a YouTube channel where we travel around Japan and the world. There are some stories we can't film. For those, we'll share our Tokyo Tales.
We've been married for 12 years. 12 years! To celebrate, we went to Guam, and we've got some stories to tell about people swimming in full clothing, and threatening a man with a knife.
For this week's podcast we're talking extensively about RuPaul's Drag Race, season 11, and why it's important to Martina. It really is. Spoilers about this episode, so be warned!
Things are going to have to change over the next month, it seems. Martina's hand is worse than expected...
We think the idea of soul mates is giving people the wrong idea of what it takes to make a relationship work. Happily Ever After doesn't really tell people how much work goes into a marriage. So, we'll talk a bit about what we do, what you don't see, and our thoughts on marriage counselling in this week's episode!
We've been doing this social media thing for a long time now. And as we grow older and see more people get into the field, we're starting to wonder what is a healthy way for us to share a message with you, in ways that won't cause more harm than good.
Episode 15 gives a convoluted answer to a simple question: where are you from? For us, that's not an easy question to answer, and I don't know what's the right thing to say.
Episode 14 of the Tokyo Tales podcast has us talking a bit about our time in Barcelona, and then we get into a bit of a heated discussion about tourist traps. WTF is a tourist trap? Help us understand better, because right now, we're not fond of the phrase...
Today we're talking about one of our techniques for traveling with chronic pain, and Martina shares a special story about a lion.
Our neighbour surprised us by inviting us over to her house for a tea ceremony. We enthusiastically accepted, and had a very special memory made that day.
We went down to Kobe to shoot a big video, and went wandering out by ourselves, and found a connection to our past lives that we weren't expecting.
We've been thinking about what kind of house we'd want int he future, and we got ushered to the spirit realm by a magical animal.
For this week's podcast, we saw puppies, new coffee shops, huge doggies, sunsets, and Martina got herself in an uncomfortable situation, all in one day's worth of adventuring
We're grieving the loss of our dog, Spudgy, but we're trying to not get too lost in grief, so we're pushing through. Here's how.
We're back home in Tokyo, and we've learned some things about ourselves, and different ways for us to build our ladders
Martina Saved the Life of a Duck, plus, what is Carrot Milk?
