In this episode, Joseph sat down with Bob Whiting, the best-selling author (e.g. The Chrysanthemum and the Bat; You gotta have Wa; Tokyo Underworld) who has made a career of finding cross-cultural insight in unexpected places—like baseball and the Japanese underworld. His new memoir is Tokyo Junkie: 60 Years of Bright Lights and Back Alleys . . . and Baseball. It recounts his remarkable intercultural journey – his small town roots; his 60-year love affair with Tokyo; his cross-cultural writing career, and how he learned to feel at home between cultural worlds.
