Podcast

It's very strange, but I don't see any of our podcasts up on iTunes anymore. I wonder if they changed their format or we moved or deleted our XML files.

For the time being, please download them from here.

The Download isn't working.

It simply says "not found". I'd like to listen to these.
Please help.

Really? I can give you some advice- take your time :) have normal conversations, and in my opinion, this is the best site iv'e found. And with reading/writing,go for Hiragana first, then Katakana, then Romaji. Kanji is the hardest >.< Welcome :D and good luck!~

~ Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are, because you'll become things that they'll want to be~

どもありがとございます!

This is truly one of the better language podcasts I've heard. Short, sweet, and simple enough to grasp. Just one suggestion... It would be great if you included the dialog in both English and Japanese in the description description or lyrics windows. Or possibly include a link or the web address to the specific page on this site. Sometimes my ears have a tendency of mixing up sounds. Being able to view the words would help correct any pronunciation issues.

Thanks!
