This week's J-Talk Podcast is 63 minutes with Sean Carroll on J1 Matchday 14, the state of the top flight at the World Cup break and a little on the future of the Japan national team.
We discuss Yokohama's win in the Kanagawa derby, FC Tokyo finally breaking their goal drought and Urawa's win over Cerezo, with an in-depth look at the problems the pink half of Osaka face to boot.
After taking a couple of twitter questions I farewell Sean (at 54:25), wrap-up the rest of the J1 matchday (to 59:40) and bring you up to date on the weekend's J2 and J3 matchdays.
