Hiroki and Andrew Communicate Badly

If you’re looking for a good way to get a feel for what it’s like to live in Japan, I’ve got a great podcast for you. When my Emmy-award winning podcast, Planet Japan, was finally put out to pasture a couple years ago, I appointed the guys at the Bad Communication podcast to be my worthy successors.

Hiroki Matsuuchi and Andrew Hawkins are a couple of Americans who, since 2010, have been communicating badly from their perches in Tokushima and Osaka, respectively. Their podcast is available both on video and audio, and can even be viewed live on UStream.

The topics of conversation on Bad Communication run the gamut from the latest cool Japanese tech stuff to some of the more exotic happenings in the news. And it’s all delivered with such wit, grace and charm that you’d never know that they’re both on the run from the law. (Just kidding. Or am I?)

    Zune and iPod: Most people corpame the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
