A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

TsukuPod: A Podcast about Life in Tsukuba

I have been testing out the idea of offering a podcast about life in Tsukuba and I have put two preliminary episodes online.


A podcast is like a radio show that you can download and listen to either online on your computer or with a media player like an iPod (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast).

I haven’t decided yet whether to keep podcasting (it is quite time consuming), but I thought I would at least put these two podcasts online for people to listen to. If you have any ideas or suggestions
(other than that I should get better at being an announcer — I already know that!), or if you want to contribute to this project in any way (e.g. designing a logo, recording music to be showcased during
the podcast or used during the interludes, recording your own podcast and having it featured on the TsukuPod site, or suggesting events or other items to profile on the show), please contact me at the TsukuPod address.

    Thanks, Avi! I am not sure whether I can keep it up, but it has been fun to try it out so far. Maybe we need an “Avi Talks about Tsukuba” corner on the show…
