Zach Rosenbloom lived the TEFL dream and taught English in Japan for two years. Zach joins the show today to talk about one of the easiest ways to move abroad and have a job when you get there – teaching English to students in a foreign country. He discusses what it’s like to move somewhere and adapt to the place culturally, and what it’s like speaking English to a bunch of kids that don’t speak fluent English.

Today’s episode also features the return of Melanie Sutrathada, No Blackout Dates’ first-ever guest and go-to fill-in when one of the boys is out on the road. Melanie snd Eben dive deep with Zach on what it's like to live in Japan, and how he went about making it happen. If you’ve ever thought about teaching English abroad, this ep is a must-listen.

In Hot Takes, Tim and Eben discuss the hidden intercom systems that many hotels have, and what it takes to get your money’s worth out of those expensive airport lounges. Tip – don’t judge them by what you consume, judge them by what you’re avoiding by being in there.
