What are podcasts?

Podcasts are a series of online videos that can be recorded by either a podcast host or the host of the show, usually through a site like YouTube.

The videos themselves are usually shorter than a podcast episode, usually 1-3 minutes in length.

For example, a new episode of an episode of a show like  Naruto Shippuden will usually be 3 minutes in duration, while a new anime episode of  One Piece will usually be 4 minutes.

These videos are often hosted on various social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, where you can share and listen to them.

The most popular of these is  YouTube’s  Live Podcasts.

Some popular podcasts are  The Good Stuff with  Neil Strauss,  The Colbert Report, and  Mad Men.

How do I listen to podcasts?

A podcast is like a web show, except it is a web podcast that you can download to your computer, and you can listen to it whenever you want.

This is a great way to start listening to podcasts.

Most of them are available on YouTube, which means you can browse through them and see what they have to offer.

To listen to a podcast, you simply start the podcast and click on the podcast icon, which will appear in the top left corner of your screen.

You can also search for a podcast by using the search box at the top of the screen, which can help you find what you’re looking for.

What do you do with your podcasts?

You can download them to your phone or tablet, and they can be viewed on your phone and on your computer.

If, like us in Japan, your phone is set up for podcasts, you could watch the show on your desktop computer, or you could listen to the show while driving or on your commute home.

How does Japanese translate audio?

You know that the Japanese words that describe the sounds of words and sounds are all spelled out in kanji?

That’s the way that Japanese translates audio into English.

To get started with translating audio, click on a word in a podcast title and then click on “translate.”

This will take you to a translation screen, where the audio will be changed to English, along with the audio pronunciation of the word in question.

If the pronunciation of a word doesn’t sound right, you might be able to learn more about the word through an online dictionary, like this one.

How can I make a podcast using Japanese?

You have two options for making a podcast:  you can make a short video (around 5 minutes), or you can make your podcast into a movie.

To make a video, you first need to get a Japanese-language podcast and download the app.

Then, create an account on the app, and then select the “Make a Podcast” tab.

You’ll need to add a short description of the podcast to the description field, and select “English Only.”

How to create a podcast on YouTube?

If you use YouTube as your podcasting platform, you may have heard of  The Anime Time podcast, a YouTube channel where you’ll be able upload and listen to anime-related content on Japanese-based podcasts.

This is because you can upload videos that are dubbed in Japanese, which is something that is not available in English. 

The best way to learn how to make a Japanese podcast is to read the The Official Japanese Podcast Guide, which we will be using to guide you through the process. 

If you are using an Android device, you will also be able download the audio app on your device, and play it on your TV.

To learn how, you need to download the  Anime Time Audio Player app for your Android device.

7.

How many episodes can I watch?

A good podcast will likely have between 1-2 episodes, or episodes that are available in the app for all users to listen to.

If this is the case, you are free to watch up to 6 episodes of a podcast.

If your podcast has a specific schedule that is more difficult to understand, you would need to create your own schedule and set it to watch
