Season 1: 2013-2017

Sounds Japanese Canadian to Me is a monthly podcast hosted by Raymond Nakamura and staff members at the Nikkei National Museum. They sit around a microphone (usually in the museum’s collection vault – for ambience) and have a casual discussion on a chosen Japanese Canadian topic. The goal of this endeavour is to entertain and wow people about Japanese Canadian history and culture.
