Konnichiwa Podcast

    konnichiwa podcast

    This delightful podcast is hosted by three bilingual speakers of Japanese and English—My, Dan, and Yurie. They cover a wide range of topics, including culture, current events, and travel, mixed in with anecdotes from their own lives. If you're looking for some Japanese listening practice that is both fun and accessible, this podcast is definitely worth a listen.

    The podcast is decidedly bilingual, and this is what makes it such a gem. While all three hosts use both languages at times, Dan seems to mostly stick to English, while Yurie usually uses Japanese. My switches between both languages throughout each episode, which gives the listener snippets of Japanese conversation with enough English support that even beginner/intermediate learners of Japanese can follow along. The hosts have a funny, friendly vibe to them that makes listening to their banter very enjoyable. Give it a try!
