One of my favorite podcasts

Every episode is a treat, the hosts are amazing and have interesting content. I know they have breaks now and then and must be generally pretty busy, I just wish they would make more than a few episodes per year. Aside from that thanks for all the laughs and free content over the years :)

Sometimes fun, sometimes educational, sometimes both

The podcast is a mix of all things Japan. I find it entertaining and some good facts come up here and there. I wish there was more on the Japanese language, it seems that the female host (Kristen) tries to keep the podcast educational and on track while the two males (Koichi and Michael) ramble all kinds of nonsense that is sometime entertaining and other times very annoying and a waste of ear usage. If ear usage was limited, I would most likely avoid this podcast but since it’s not I’ll continue to listen.

No thanks

Terrible. Two dudebros yukking it up while a native Japanese speaker goes “Anyway... [attempts to explain grammar but can’t really because she’s not a teacher, just a native speaker].” The first podcast to ever make me feel uncomfortable. The guys on it are just gross as hell.
