How to Subscribe to Otaku no Podcast Directly on your iOS or Android device (Updated)

Most people, when they listen to podcasts, download them on their computer (using a program like iTunes, Winamp or similar) and sync them to their portable device when they plug it in. The main disadvantage of this is that you are tethered to your computer; if you are away from your computer you are unable […]


Video #0007 – Japanese Classic Cuisine: Yakitori

Yes, I’m taking another break from audio podcasting. Today I show you how to make a classic Japanese dish that you’ve probably had many times before, Yakitori.

Cool Find: Cooking with Dog

(no, it’s not what you think…)

I’ve talked and blogged about Japanese food before, as have our friends over at TJX.  In fact I’ve even made a video or three on the subject. (In all fairness, the TJX crew did this as well.) But there’s something missing from our videos, something that would give […]


Otaku no Podcast is proud to announce that we are now a Friend of JList!

Click for J-List

Do you look at all those cool anime figurines, artbooks, toys, posters, and related goods that all the J-bloggers are gushing over, only to have your heart filled with sadness because you live in an area absolutely bereft of any sort of Japanese import store?  Do you drool and salivate […]


The TJX Crew Invade J-Town

If you live in or near a city of reasonable size, odds are that it has a fairly sizable Japanese-American population, and that it would have some form of Japantown.  Perhaps it’s nothing more than a collection of several Japanese or Asian markets or restaurants along a particular city block, or perhaps it’s a huge […]

Video #0004 - The Sushi Experiment 3.0: Nigiri, Temaki, Chirashi, and Facing the Fish

Greetings, and welcome to the third and final installment in this series of sushi making videos.  It’s finally time to run with the big dogs and face your fears – raw fish.  But don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as it sounds, and assuming you have access to a reasonably good Asian foods market (or […]

Video #0003 - The Sushi Experiment 2.0: Rolled Sushi

Well, I didn’t get any angry e-mails or death threats, so I’m assuming that you folks liked our first videocast (or were at the very least willing to tolerate it).  So we’re back with another.  In this, our second installment in the Sushi series, we’ll be talking about how to make maki sushi, or rolled […]

Video #0002 - The Sushi Experiment 1.0: Inari Sushi

Welcome to our first ever videocast.  Okay, technically this is our second videocast, but since the first one was an Anime LA highlights video I put together over 9000 years ago, it doesn’t really count.  In this first videocast, we take a brief journey away from anime, and into the kitchen, and I teach you […]


How to make Okonomiyaki, TJX style!

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese food best described as a sort of Japanese pancake (or perhaps omelette), with various other ingredients (meats, seafood, vegetables, cheese, etc.) mixed in.  It may be difficult to type, but it’s pretty darn tasty.  Like many other Japanese dishes, it is enjoyed throughout the country, and each region has its own […]


The TJX crew talk about one of my favorite subjects – FOOD!

The good news is that my two work projects went very well, and I’ve been having a great time at BlogWorld and New Media Expo, learning a lot of good blog/podcasting stuff and meeting and networking with a lot of cool people.  I even took the opportunity to upgrade my podcasting setup – I got […]
