HHH02 – Interview with Emmy Made in Japan

My interview with Emmy from Emmy Made in Japan, episode 2 of Hilah’s Happy Hour! Emmy runs this super popular and entertaining YouTube channel, producing several videos a week. Her audience sends packages of their favorite treats from all around the world and she does a fantastic job of showcasing them, tasting them and teaching a little about them. In this interview, we discuss why she started her channel while living in Japan, different kinds of Cheetos, Shine Theory, and eating bugs.

    Gosh, I’d SOOOOOO love to listen to this, but there’s no link, no other information on where and how…..am I missing something amongst all the ads on your website???????????

      Gosh, what an entirely rude comment. I guess thank you for making me aware that a plugin on my site isn’t working. I’ll get on that. There is a soundcloud link to listen to the episode near the bottom of the post. And in case you are unaware, ads allow me to make things like podcasts and videos and this entire website that are FREE for everyone.

        Thanks for the SoundCloud link I’ve been trying to download your earlier episodes and couldn’t stream nor download them. I’m sorry you have to deal with those ignorant kind of people.. I love you and what you do! 🙂
