“HOTCAST” – A Japanese Podcast Review
“HOTCAST” is a Japanese podcast, in the Japanese language, where the hosts talk about a variety of everyday topics every week. This is a great podcast for intermediate/advanced Japanese language learners to listen to everyday Japanese. Michi and Kumu host this show and are easy to understand. Even though this podcast is meant for Japanese listeners, they speak clearly and it is easy to pick up separate words.
“HOTCAST” episodes are published pretty much every week. The podcast began in 2015, and they are now up to episode #838. Most of the episodes are somewhere around 30 minutes to 1 hour in length, although some do go longer than 1 hour. They say that they discuss “hot” topics related to everyday life like: food and alcohol, the community, hobbies, society, IT, and more.
They have a website, but it is all in Japanese, and there is not really much there: HOTCAST
