Customer Reviews

Good idea, but very biased.

All of the commentary is very libertarian, anti-religion, etc. Which would be fine, but 75% of the podcast is discussion of the news, not the news itself, so it becomes a highly opinionated (and one-sided) discussion.

I may keep listening to it just for the bilingual way of approaching a given topic, as it’s really helpful for lower intermediate/upper beginners, but Michael seems really forceful in asserting his position and Mami just kind of acquiesces. A shame!

Great Podcast!

As an American learning Japanese in Japan, I often struggle with finding new & interesting content to listen to. Bilingual News is a breath of fresh air. Keep up the good work :)

Just OK, but needs cleanup

The format is good and the world desperately needs more shows with this idea. They have enough following to be a really good show. However, the show really needs cleaning up - for a top show it is far too unprofessional:
1. Swearing for swearing sake is extremely unprofessional and you owe your audience more respect. I have bi-lingual children and the show is not kid safe. This is a shame since it would benefit many bi-lingual families to listen.
2. Excessive inane banter by the hosts. Too much biased opinion based commentary compared to actual news reporting. Some opinion is OK, but the show drags out far too long to the point where I just can't stand listening to the hosts jabber on any further.
3. Host often spout out facts with insufficient research. Lots of ad-hoc facts are given that are just plain wrong or based on misconception.
