365日物語 (365 Days of Stories)

PLEASE NOTE
This link is dead. I am keeping this original listing just for reference.

365日物語 (365 Days of Stories – my translation) is a series of three minute readings from the book of the same name. Each episode ties into a historical event linked to the same date – I listened to episodes about Mary Shelley’s publication of Frankenstein, Churchill’s take on the Iron Curtain and how Franklin Roosevelt was never photographed in his wheelchair. Very easy on the ears, especially on multiple listenings – the narrator’s almost imperceptible lisp reminds me of the endearing Atsushi Ito from Densha Otoko. Lots of great vocab and if you are not careful you may even learn something about history too. Intermediate and above. [courtesy of Nihongojouzu.com]
