Joining Charles Adrian for the 88th Second-Hand Book Factory is artist, designer, musician and all-round creative Satoshi Dāté. They talk about a kind of self-help literature, a very particular strain of Englishness and a lot of origami cranes. Satoshi reads in Japanese so there is ear porn on offer for language addicts.

Incidentally, I asked Satoshi about his age; he could have just pointed me to this blog post.
