    今回(こんかい)もまた、高校(こうこう)の時(とき)の友達(ともだち)のさっとんと話(はな)しました。今回(こんかい)は非常(ひじょう)に厳(きび)しくなりつつある日本(にほん)のテレビの放送倫理(ほうそうりんり)についての話(はなし)です。放送禁止用語(ほうそうきんしようご)だけでなく、喫煙(きつえん)のシーンや、コメディアンが頭(あたま)を叩(たた)くことですら、問題視(もんだいし)されている日本(にほん)のテレビ業界(ぎょうかい)は、いったいこの先(さき)どうなるのか。少(すこ)し難(むずか)しい話題(わだい)について考(かんが)えてみました。

    I talked with my friend from high school, Satton again. In this episode, I would like to talk about Japan's TV broadcasting ethics, which are becoming very strict recently. What will happen to the Japanese television industry, where not only banned words but also smoking scenes and comedians hitting their partner's heads are criticized? We thought about those difficult topics.

    This time, we welcomed our first guest of this year! My best friend from high school, Satton, joined us from Sydney! When I met her last autumn, I felt that the Japanese she used was soooooo old and lame! In this episode, I introduced various new Japanese words used by teens to her.

    今回(こんかい)は、以前(いぜん)にネットニュースで見(み)つけた、アメリカの面白(おもしろ)い訴訟(そしょう)について話(はな)しました。

    日本(にほん)では訴訟(そしょう)を起(お)こす事(こと)は結構(けっこう)大変(たいへん)で難(むずか)しいことなのですが、訴訟社会(そしょうしゃかい)であるアメリカでは、日本(にほん)では考(かんが)えられないような、訴訟があるみたいで、超(ちょう)面白(おもしろ)かったです!

    In this episode, we talked about an interesting lawsuits in the US that I found on Internet news before.
    In Japan, filing a lawsuit is quite difficult. On the other hand, everybody knows that America is a litigious society.  In the States, there seems to be lawsuits that would be incredible here in Japan, and it was super interesting!
