Refreshing take on Japanese current events

For podcasts out of Japan, especially news, this weekly roundup is well produced, relatively fast paced with an occasional bit of insight (and sometimes snark). The inclusion of Japan Today readers' comments on the stories makes it not all one-sided commentary. Definitely worth checking out for your train commute.

Good information

This is a good supplement to the Japan Today website. Kong is great with entertainment and I enjoy the other speciality shows like Tech and Real Estate.
