What are some good Japanese Podcasts on Itunes?

I need some that are either intermidiate level or have an online transcript. I like food, cooking, learning, video games, new technology, and short story podcast. So if you know of any in those genres, please let me know!!

japanesepod101 has what you are looking for.

I'm unaware if there are free podcasts with their respective transcripts, at least in the fields you are interested in.


Maybe you want to try asking to the guys at tofugu, ajatt, etc.

Bilingual news is great. They read a news article in Japanese and then read it in English and comment on it.

Other native podcasts I listen to:
ジェーン・スー相談は踊る- they listen to various problems and give advice

JUNK 爆笑問題〜comedy podcast, but lots of slang

i just downloaded Tokyo 飲食ライフ, but I havent listened to it yet. It's supposed to be about food/drink.

There are a ton of podcasts to try! Check out

JLPT Boot Camp, News in slow Japanese, Learn Japanese with Yes Japan!, GengoLanguages and Chotto Matte. Those are the ones currently on my playlist. A lot are quite short lessons but makes it easier to pick out the ones you need at your level.
