In the fifth episode of the Japan Startup Megaphone podcast, we spoke with our dai-senpai in this field, Tim Romero, a Tokyo-based author and entrepreneur best known for his Disrupting Japan podcast.

Romero has been on the Japan startup scene for nearly a quarter century, and his podcast now tends to pull in about 10,000 listeners per episode.

He explained that he chose the podcast format, as opposed to video, because it seemed less work intensive and better suited to facilitating conversations. Through the podcasts, he has strived to highlight unique aspects of Japanese culture through the lens of startup founders.
