Most of the interviewees are native English-speaking foreign residents of Nagano Prefecture who live in the greater Matsumoto area. They share their stories about living and working in Japan.

For Episode 42, Dave talks with Susanne Prein of Germany.  Susanne hails from Würzburg, home of Phillip Franz von Siebold, who in 1823 was the first European to teach Western medicine in Japan.  Susanne explains how she was introduced to Japanese culture and language as a student at the Siebold High School in Würzburg, and she then describes her subsequent study and work experiences in Japan.
