Dionne Warwick. Kevin Jackson. In this episode of our weekly podcast, we’re joined by legendary singer Dionne Warwick to talk about her upcoming visit to the Blue Note, her love of Japan, and her granddaughter, up-and-coming vocalist Cheyenne Elliott.

We also sit down with Kevin Jackson, the former University of Hawaii football star who now plays for the Obic Seagulls in Japan’s X League, to discuss how American football in played in Japan, outreach into schools, and much more.

In this Metropolis One-on-One, host C Bryan Jones is joined by Kevin Jackson, the former University of Hawaii (American) football star who now plays for the Obic Seagulls in Japan’s X League. Kevin has been playing football in Japan for more than a decade now and has become an ambassador of sorts for the game. Kevin explains how the pro and college games are played in Japan, talks about the chances of its popularity growing, and shares the experience of the Seagulls visiting The University of Alabama and competing in the first-ever Sister Cities International Bowl in Tuscaloosa, the sister city of the Seagulls’ home of Narashino.

Krzysztof Gonciarz. Traci Consoli. In this episode of our weekly podcast, we’re joined by Krzysztof Gonciarz of The Uwaga Pies, a daily vlog about life in Tokyo, to talk about his history with YouTube, how The Uwaga Pies came about, and how he and his vlogging partner Kasia put together these daily romps through our city.

We also sit down with Traci Consoli at The Pink Cow in Roppongi to talk about her popular restaurant and art space that’s coming up on its 15th anniversary and why she has dedicated herself to providing the creative community with a place to express themselves, why California will always be part of her, and more.


In addition to our two featured interviews, we head outside to bring you some recommendations for vegetarian- and Vegan-friendly dining around the city. In audio Lingoist we show you how to ask for directions to that restaurant you’re looking for. Plus, we once again make a few trips to Classifieds Corner.

This week’s segments were recorded at various locations around Roppongi Hills and at The Pink Cow in Roppongi.
