Tom Feiling in Tokyo joins Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC and India Bourke in London to discuss the upcoming Tokyo Olympics in Japan. As the country enters another state of emergency and spectators are banned from attending, we ask how are the Japanese feeling about the games – the first in Japan for nearly 50 years.
Then in You Ask Us, they take a listener’s question on whether the Olympic Games should be broken up to avoid having these expensive and controversial events all in one city. If you’d like to submit a question to You Ask Us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
