For the first podcast in our conference series, your hosts Nate and Chris come to you live from the AAS/ICAS (The Association for Asian Studies and the International Convention of Asia Scholars) Conference held in Honolulu, Hawaii, from March 31st to April 3rd, 2011. You'll hear reactions and comments on the first few seminars of the first day, including lectures covering Japan's current security issues, religion and manga, and Zen Buddhism and the Muromachi Shogunate. Recorded on site at a table at the conference, sound quality is pretty much as expected - hopefully the background noise will enhance the overall experience with that "on the ground, in the trenches" feel. Consider it overall a work in progress, and enjoy!
