    Japanesepod101 have podcasts on iTunes I believe. Funnily enough, if you check your dashboard and scroll down to offers, there seems to be a deal for TextFugu members to get 50% off a premium Jpod101 account.

    Any ones which are actual Japanese ones rather than lessons, preferably on iTunes so it can be easy to listen to.

    There are some mentioned in this thread, http://www.textfugu.com/bb/topic/the-secret-to-improving-your-listening/, you have to change your itunes store to Japan to be able to find them first though.

    Don’t think you can find it on Itunes though.

    EDIT:

    However, you can find this on Itunes

    If you want to listen to natural spoken Japanese, I highly recommend obtaining an iTunes Japan account, as that will make available a real treasure trove of Japanese podcasts.

    Big list here, not all of them are still active though.  I like Hot Cast, but I haven’t tried a ton.

    Does any one know how to get a Japanese iTunes account as I’m having trouble, since I don’t have a Japanese address or Japanese payment details?

    @ ninjoetsu

    Are you wanting to actually buy things or just download free podcasts in which case you don’t need a Japanese account?

    I don’t know about podcasts, but I like to listen to live broadcasts (生放送) on NicoNicoDouga (http://live.nicovideo.jp) . It’s free (although you usually have to join their community to listen – and you may get kicked if they’re very popular and you aren’t a premium member.) and on top of that, a lot of the people who do them are very funny and entertaining.

    All you need is a Nico account, which is easy. If you don’t know Japanese very well, it’s not that difficult to stumble around until you find yourself in a live broadcast.

    @ninjoetsu - if you’re just after the (free) podcasts you just need to change your country to Japan in iTunes.

    I can’t download podcasts without an iTunes account and if I try logging in with my English account it doesn’t let me use the Japan store.

    @ninjoetsu - I’ve only started using so I don’t know heaps about it, but I was able to set it up by going to the iTunes store & in the bottom right of the screen there’s a country icon. After you select that you can choose your country or region. Selecting Japan there allowed me to get access.

    Thanks vanandrew, I tried changing language settings once, which just gave me the English store in Japanese. Didn’t see that little circle at the bottom until you mentioned it ^^
