What do you do when the company you work for goes belly up?  Today's guest, Thomas Leitke, talks about his experience of working for GEOS, a major operator of eikaiwa (English conversation) schools in Japan. The company filed for bankruptcy in April, leaving Thomas and many other language teachers without work. Thomas also talks about some of the activities he pursues in his free time.

In addition, an uguisu (Japanese bush warbler) sings a lovely rendition of "ho-hokekyo".
