Episode 69 - In Quarantine with Raj Ramayya

Raj Ramayya joins me from quarantine in Saskatchewan to talk about his work and what he's been up to since his last appearance on the podcast. Best known as a vocalist for Cowboy Bebop, Wolf's Rain and Made in Abyss, Raj is a frequent collaborator with Yoko Kanno and Kevin Penkin. He talks about his recent work on Tower of God, the strengths of the Canadian music industry, the ways in which the Japanese music industry has (and hasn't) changed over the past 20 years and the ever prevalent specter of Tommy Lee Jones in Japanese advertising.
