The Truth About The Real Life Takumi Fujiwara from Initial D.
1:39:19In this episode, I sat down with Jammal who is one of my regular co-hosts, to discuss my fallout with Mr. Fuji****, the man who claims to be “the real life Takumi Fujiwara”. I will not link to his social media, but you can find it if you try even a little bit. Suffice to say, I do not appreciate the things being said about me from someone I considered a friend and was trying to protect for his own sake. This podcast discusses in depth about my relationship with him, and basically my side and thought process, which I hope people will find reasonable, and will see things for how they really are. It’s all very disappointing, and tbh I don’t know yet how the chips will fall, but I felt like I had to put this out otherwise my name will just get dragged in the mud for no reason, and I have a certain responsibility as well to let people know how things really are. Thanks for listening.
The Podcast Is Back!
2:09:49I’m this episode, I’m joined by Masa (@Masalovescars) and we chatted for two hours about tons of stuff such as his upcoming move back to the Tokyo area to work at Top Rank, the rising prices of JDM cars, ideas for collaborating on upcoming projects, and tons of other random stuff! Great podcast and it’s good to be back at it.
AMA: Answering your questions about working in Japan, motivation, and JDM culture!
3:59:45In this super long (4 hour!) episode of the podcast, I answered around 13 or so questions about living and working in Japan, finding the motivation to pursue your dreams abroad and dealing with leaving your friends and family back home, and some questions about cars and car culture. This was a ton of fun to do and I’ll be doing more of these since I have a ton of great questions I still need to answer. Hope you enjoy this one!
Overcoming fear, self doubt, and realizing it’s simple - you either do it or you don’t.
2:14:16In this episode, I’m joined by Masa (@masalovescars) where we crack open a couple of beers and just talk about cars and life. In this episode it seemed like Masa was going through a bit of a personal crisis and so I did my best to offer my perspective about what it takes to leave the salary grind, start your own thing, and keep going. We did a “future pacing” visualization exercise that I do myself regularly and towards the end, I even read a page from my journal because it felt like a real heart-to-heart bro moment where I really wanted it to resonate. Hope you guys enjoy this one and that it has some value for your life.
Kung Fu, Internet Clout, Why Positivity Is The Most Logical Choice For Life
1:26:36In this episode, I’m joined by my good friend Jamal, where we talk about the ol days when we used to train Kung Fu together. We talk about JDM cars and culture, the toxic nature of internet clout, and the reason why positivity is the most logical choice for a life worth living.
A Deep Dive Into The Mindset Required To Really Go For Your Dreams
2:36:18In this episode, I’m joined by one of my oldest and best friends, Chris Coelho (@itschriscoelho on Instagram and Chris;Coelho on YouTube). Chris is preparing to make the jump to living in Japan to pursue his dreams and in this episode we really unpack it and analyze all the important details of what you have to think about when you consider moving to Japan, and pursuing a dream of building a successful YouTube channel and online business to support your whole life. It’s definitely possible and I think the things we talk about in this podcast apply even if you aren’t planning to live in Japan but are just trying to figure out how to get your life together and take it to the next level.
