    In this edition of the Podcast, Debito reads three of his JUST BE CAUSE Japan Times columns. His first three, published nearly two years ago, are on the image of activists in Japan, on how public forums in Japan regarding human rights keep spinning their wheels, and on how academics should also get into activism in a show of “academic social responsibility”. This is his first podcast in nearly two years. For those who would rather listen to during your exercise or commute than read it online, enjoy.

      Any particular reason you’ve opted for the very hefty wav format instead of mp3? Just curious.

      — Should I go mp3 too? I can. I’ll have it up by this evening.

      Any particular reason you’ve opted for the very iffy Duran Duran image instead of something else? Just curious. :-)

      — ‘Cos I always end my podcasts with a DD tune excerpt. Gotta do my thing for the home team!

    3. Jeff Jones Says:

      Yeah! I love podcasts and you are a great speaker.

      I agree… MP3 is probably a better format for podcasts on portable players.

      Hope this won’t be your last podcast. :-)

      — It won’t be. Not to worry. Meanwhile, here’s the .mp3 version:
