In this podcast, I will tell you about about flute lessons by Takanori Yamane and three events that are taking place in the next little while: the first ever Tsukuba Slow Market (October 25 and 26), second annual Tsukuba International Walking Event (November 9), and the Edo-Themed Fall Festival at Boso-no-Mura (November 2 and 3) which is in Chiba. Also, as promised, I mention three other information sources that you will find useful during your time in Tsukuba: the Tsukuba Area International Residents Association (TAIRA) mailing list, the Tsukuba Information Forum, and the Tsukuba Bulletin newsletter produced by the City Hall (some back issues are available on the City Hall website — if you think they should start putting them online again, feel free to email the City Hall and ask them to get on it!).

If you have any comments or suggestions about the podcast, please leave a comment on this post. Also, it would be really great if more people could join me in this project by, for example, contributing their own podcasts, creating some music for the opening and closing jingles, or designing an eye-catching logo for the podcast. If you would like to contribute in some way, please contact me!

Here is the very first TsukuPod episode. In it, you will learn about three essential Tsukuba websites: TsukuBlog, Alien Times, and the Tsukuba City Hall website.

This episode is quite short (only about 7 minutes) because I haven’t really mastered the art of sound recording just yet. Also, I am not sure whether I will be able to keep this up or not, so I am using this as a test case to see how long it takes and how much work it is to record, edit, and upload the podcasts.

If you have any comments or suggestions about the podcast, please leave a comment on this post. Also, it would be really great if more people could join me in this project and contribute their own podcasts. So, if you want to record a TsukuPod episode and have it hosted here, please contact me!
