The Real Japanese Podcast

Introducing “The Real Japanese Podcast: 日本語で話すだけのラジオです!” Episodes average at about 15 minutes long, making them short enough to be digestible, but long enough to be interesting and immersive. The host, Haruka, is a native speaker of Japanese who has a pretty active online presence accross many platforms as a Japanese teacher.

My favorite thing about this podcast is that Haruka releases a script of every episode on her blog, making for excellent listen-along reading practice. Haruka does an amazing job of speaking slowly enough for second language learners, without actually sounding inauthentic. If you want to challenge yourself a bit more, you can try speeding up the podcast playback. I tried it at 1.5 x as fast and it made for a fun reading challenge! [Tofugu Annotation]
