You like this international intrigue? Here's a link to my first Around the World in a Daze podcast, back in 2009. I also did a set of "Around the World in a Daze" on More Freeform Weirdo Podcasting. There's a set of Japanese punk and garage music on Forbidden Cavern Fandango and a set of African psychedelic rock on Felonious Funhouse.
