||Gas Talk Emperor's Cup Special||It was a very happy new year for us with our Emperor's Cup triumph the perfect way to kick off 2012, and Dan & I couldn't let arguably the club's finest day pass without a special Gas Talk to commemorate it. But as there have also been several personnel changes in the first three days of the offseason we had plenty of other ground to cover, while we took the opportunity to look ahead a little to our Asian Champions League debut.||1/5/12||Free||View In iTunes|

||Episode11||A strong second half performance saw FC Tokyo move to within a bee's pubic of a return to J1 today, and right after the game Graham and I retired to the back stairs at Aji Sta to record Episode 11 of Gas Talk. With promotion practically sealed, we were a little disappointed not to see more of a party atmosphere inside the ground, but at the same time understanding of the fact that the home end want to wait until its 100% certain, which is likely to be next weekend, when we visit Tottori.||11/12/11||Free||View In iTunes|
||Episode10||After a stirring buildup, and with an impressive 35,911 spectators on hand, Tokyo Derby XIV ended up being another exercise in frustration for FC Tokyo,Straight afterwards, Tokyo Bairn and I were joined out on the back stairs by two special guests, Lewis (@NobuyukiTosey on twitter) Tosey and Steve (@AgentOrange2009) Barme, to discuss the game (although we didn't do that in great detail to be honest) and other J.League topics,||11/5/11||Free||View In iTunes|
||Gas Talk Episode 9||From 1-0 down to 6-1 winners...Wow, what a turnaround, and you can hear it in our voices throughout this Episode, as we discuss the ho-hum last six weeks out the back of Aji Sta in Part 1, then our excellent last 15 minutes of the first half inside the stadium in Part 2, before raving about the demolition job The Gasmen performed in the second half in Part 3.Enjoy.||9/11/11||Free||View In iTunes|
||Gas Talk - Episode 8||Happy days at Aji Sta, as The Gasmen roared to the top of J2 with an utterly dominant 4-0 thrashing of bottom club FC Gifu.And we were there to tell you all about it. Tokyo Bairn and Dan joined me for a three-part Gas Talk, recorded before kickoff, at half time and then fulltime out on the back stairs.Be careful of the volume levels again, in particular the difference between Parts 1 & 2 (recorded inside the stadium) and Part 3 (out the back so much quieter).Enjoy.||7/18/11||Free||View In iTunes|
||Gas Talk Episode 7||FC Tokyo 3-0 TottoriJ2 Matchday 14In a Gas Talk first, Tokyo Bairn and I podcasted about last night's 3-0 win over Tottori live from inside Aji Sta!Things naturally get a bit noisy during Part 1 with the fireworks going off, so watch the volume levels, but Part 2 was recorded out the back, and your eardrums shouldn't have too many troubles.This will take the place of the usual On the Gas Match Report, so at about 23 minutes long I hope it will tide you all over.Enjoy.||7/4/11||Free||View In iTunes|
