"Uh huh", "right", "yea", "ok"

I like this podcast. I love japan and I enjoy the topics and the research is sufficient. I really only
have one gripe. Can you please stop with the, "uh huh", "ok", "mhmm", "yea" every two seconds?! Any time someone makes a point and it seems almost after every second, it's met with the same noises and after a while it's very annoying. Overall, this is an ok podcast but please try to work on letting the other person present the story to the audience without either of you cutting in every two seconds to say "uh huh", "right".

Good for Amateurs, Great for learning about Japanese culture, but...

First off, I want to commend the two hosts for informing the audience about Japanese history and culture. I'm on episode 2, and have thoroughly enjoyed what I've learned this far.
The research is also sound-- and if rate it 4 stars if not for the caveat to that.

It's beginning to get harder to look (listen) past the suppositions you guys make about subjects you lack knowledge about.

Specifically, mental illness. I am not the type of person to find "crazy" an offensive descriptor, but you guys have a "well you have to be crazy to kill" mentality AFAIK. When I think of what "crazy" means to you guys, I get the feeling it is "capable of murder" = "crazy", while also associating it with mental illness. There's a huge stigma against mental illness, (especially "scary" conditions like schizophrenia). This is utterly inaccurate, albeit common. IMO, armchair psychology runs you the risk of looking uninformed (or even ignorant) to listeners who may have more experience with the subject. (I'm not advocating you guys stop investigating what makes these people tick, tho!)

2chan is another one. It felt as if you guys got and incomplete nuance of the site, and thus gave a shallow portrayal of the significance.

Aside from that and EP 2's schizophrenia moment, it's hard to pinpoint other examples... And btw for subjects you DO know about, it's very obvious and very educational/entertaining.

...However, there's an ongoing feeling I have that you guys talk about things you don't know or have an instinct about, and lead them to "idk *shrug*" conclusions.
You guys seem like you want to give insight into your subjects, find reasonings behind them, or be sort of detectives about it. I think you guys can get there, too. All you need is experience and to work on some things.

(If you two want a good example of playing detective, I suggest y'all listen to an episode of "the trail turned cold". )

I wanted to like this.

The content would be fascinating if the hosts were better. The art of podcasting is being a storyteller. These 2 are not. It is painful to listen to them fumble through stories with no talent for making them lively.
