The Kyodo News podcast is designed for English learners and covers a range of topics including news writing and translating tricky Japanese phrases into English. Listeners can enjoy hearing journalists discuss recent articles and sometimes veer off on unrelated tangents. Other episodes cover topics such as Peruvian food, retro Japanese games, and Japan’s maglev train.
