Back of Japan podcast #8:

Eggs and Flamin' Pots

 Put on your aprons and light up your kilns, Back Lovers!

Due to the weather taking a chilly turn, one of the best ways to stay warm is to fill your belly with those most useful protein ovals: eggs! Lots o' ways to cook 'em, but we touch on the simple yet elegant omelette. The kitchen's no place to be scared of! You know what they say, "You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs", so go ahead and break some over a hot pan.

Next, we find a beautiful and culturally significant entry point into the Back via the Jomon period's renowned "flame-shaped" pottery, found near the Shinano River that run through Niigata (formerly Echigo). You've never seen pottery like this before and you never will anywhere else, so feast your eyes!
