Terrace Neighbors 54: Ceasefire
We continue where we left off last week and we’re ready for some reflection as we discuss episode 9 of Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020. Haruka faces the music, Risako blows off steam in a way that would make the LDP proud, and an unexpected hero visits the house.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Eine Kleine Housekeeping
A rectangle of light slices through the darkness as a door opens. Taylor, resting upon a rock at the center of the terrarium, blinks blearily at the intrusion. "It's time," the visitor says, though she can't make out their face. She hisses and skitters into the shadows. "It must be you. You're the one with the libsyn password." The creature backs up until she feels the cool press of the glass. In this perfectly smooth cage, there is nowhere to hide. "Come on, we have two quick announcements to share with the listeners. It'll take like five minutes. It was your idea. Stop being dramatic." With a sigh, the stranger places a single microphone upon the rock. "Also, stop calling your studio apartment a terrarium, it was kind of funny the first time? But then you kept making the same joke over and over and over again. Just... let me know when you get it done, okay?" The door closes, the darkness returns. Blinking her third eyelid, Taylor plugs in the mic.

Taylor breaks down what she’s been reading in quarantine, Risako and Haruka’s rivalry comes to a head, and our hosts talk life philosophies.

Terrace Neighbors 52: Hypocritical Oath
We’re still reeling from the shake-ups of last episode, and there’s still a lot left to process as we discuss episode 7 of Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020. Haruka shows her sentimental side, Ruka has a vacation epiphany, and a startling new ship appears on the horizon, sails into Tokyo Bay, and demands that we open our borders.

Terrace Neighbors 50: No Bones
It’s our 50th episode and we completely forgot! There was just a lot going on in our lives before society came to a screeching halt. Anyway, it’s time to discuss episode 5 of Terrace House: 2019-2020! Our disdain for Haruka is solidified, Ruka finds himself at the center of an unwitting love triangle, and Kenny proves the age-old adage that any weirdo can redeem himself by soulfully strumming a guitar.
