The J-Talk Podcast

Episode 316 - You Down With NPB?

May 19, 2020

After a brief K-League and Bundesliga chat at the beginning of the episode, Sam and Ben welcome in Jason Coskrey, the hardball head honcho (chief baseball writer) at The Japan Times, for a chat on how the coronavirus has affected the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) schedule, how they might proceed once it is determined safe to begin play behind closed doors, and the collaboration between NPB and J.League during the pandemic, among other topics.

Thanks to our patrons for their terrific questions (and their ongoing support), and to Jason for taking the time to speak with us. Please follow Jason on twitter (and tell him J-Talk sent you!), and check out his Japan Times archive.
