The final episode of the 10th anniversary month of the Ropecast is here, and we've saved the best for last! Akira Naka is one of the most prolific and popular Japanese nawashi in the world, and he took the time to answer Gray's unusual questions. He talks about how he learned from his teacher, why he teaches in his own style, and even how he handled it when his son found out his dad was a "dirty old man." You get to hear this and more in his own voice with the help of a translator and a bit of saké.
This podcast was made possible through the generosity and cooperation of the Rigger's Delight Studio (thanks, Vanessa!) and Demon Six (who also backs another rope podcast by Faviola called the Kinbakunomicon).
Our sponsors for this episode have been Bastard Ropes (for fantastic custom-dyed hand-made rope) and Karma Rope (the only "pay-what-you-can" rope vendor!). Please let them know that you appreciate their support of this podcast!
