60: Matterhorn for the rest of your life(Ogawa/hoa-hoa.)

We were going to take podcast another episode with Mr. Ogawa who is owner of bouldering gym Hoa-Hoa in Fukuoka, and rep of La Sportiva, to tell us a lot of behind-the-scenes stories about La Sportiva that everyone would have been interested in, but most of them turned out to be small silly talk (much more interested…). I’m happy to have a really good friend. I’ll talk about shoes properly next time hehehe.

New episode with @SIN510 from Unpallarel.
We talked about telecommuting, Kagoshima, chalk with budges, walks, WEB drinking, gym business in the Corona era, Shin-Godzilla, Redbull TV, and more.

It was a meeting to enjoy the remote by talking about positive topics and trivial things, but it ended up being mostly about Corona.

Our factory manager, who has been under self keeping at home for over two weeks, is our guest to talk about France, Italy and coronaviruses.

53: 2019 final episode with (Mansaku, Oya)

2019 final episode with Mansaku and Oya.
We read many interesting messages from listeners.

Today is Christmas day. Did Santa come to your house?

It is a valuable day for children to receive a gift unconditionally.
Although I (Mitsuo) has a skepticism of it, but I decided to give a present as a little compromise when my child was young.

However, when I buy wrapping paper, wrap the gift box myself and put a ribbon, it feels like my heart is warming.
And… I feel something when I took this home and prepared it for the next morning.
I noticed it. Christmas is not an event for those who receive gifts, but an event for those who give them.

Anyway, Thank you so much everyone. Happy holidays! – Mitsuo
