The man who never was ,

A real gem

This is an excellent listening comprehension podcast. Level is somewhere around upper beginner. Based on my listening of the first few podcasts, what we have is a story. Each podcast contains about a paragraph's-worth of the story, followed by listening comprehension questions, which are repeated in a number of variations, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to practice. Following this is a brief explanation of vocabulary. Speaking speed is much slower than normal. This is not a podcast to teach you Japanese grammar, but rather to give you practice listening and speaking. Audio quality could be better (the very first one is practically unlistenable, so start with the second one). There are many podcasts that teach grammar and vocabulary, but very few (if any) that provide good listening comprehension practice such as this. I'm glad I found this one.

It put me to sleep

Very very dry podcast - too repetative. Felt like a textbook being read aloud.

Excellent, true to its title

The best podast for listening comprehension AND learning many major grammatical constructions painlessly, because they're memorized naturally as recurring speech patterns.
I think Miss Tomoe's intonation really help remember the stories. I have a much harder time remembering anything from the news for example because the voices are
monotonous.

Unfortunately, there seem to be no recent stories added. Zannen :(
