You might be asking yourself:
What are some good anime podcasts that I can listen to while I’m living “normally” as a weeb?
Here is the problem:
There are many anime podcasts, and it’s hard to find which one to listen to.
Don’t worry! In this article, I’ll show you the best anime podcasts that you need to listen to if you want to be a better weeb/otaku.
Before I begin, I want to clarify that this list is in no specific order.
Now, let’s begin…
The Anime Addicts Anonymous Podcast was founded in July of 2009.
Yes, this podcast has been running for more than a decade!
AAA Podcast has been featured at dozens of anime conventions, been nominated for “Podcast of the Year”, and has more than 625 episodes.
They do segments on news, play game shows with callers, cover manga, do real mailbag segments, anime reviews, etc.
The podcast broadcasts weekly on Twitch.tv.
You can find the podcast downloadable via iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher, Pocketcasts, PodcastAddicts, and any other podcast app. They also have a Discord channel which you can access via the top bar of their website,
They also organize Anime Tours to Japan, so if you want to travel to the haven of Anime with some fellow anime enthusiasts, contact AAA Podcast and ask about their trip.
I had the opportunity to be a guest on their podcast, I talked with Mitsugi about the best anime attractions, anime-themed parks, real-life locations, etc.
Mitsugi lived in Japan for two years and he mentioned a lot of anime spots in that episode. The episode is quite fun, don’t miss it!

All Ages of Geek
They cover everything from anime to video games or anything related to geek culture.
Follow the All Ages of Geek Team on their geeky adventures every week and learn more about what goes behind the scenes at All Ages of Geek.
I had the pleasure of being a guest on The Geekoning, where Tatiana and Derek are the hosts. Derek is a big Pokémon fan and Tatiana loves Fullmetal Alchemist, so I can tell you that she is a woman of culture.
Anyone that thinks that Full Metal Alchemist is one of the greatest anime of all time is worth listening to.
Listen to the episode here, where we talked about the Anime Life in Japan.
The /r/Anime Podcast
The /r/Anime Podcast was formed by a group of users from the /r/anime community, commonly known as The Tokyo Podfathers.
Their episodes feature a wide range of topics including airing anime coverage, individual anime discussions, hentai, and doujin debriefs, creator spotlights, and even video game and food debates. It has a wide variety of topics and guests.
The /r/Anime Podcast is always down to have a good talk with good people.
One of the things that I like about /r/Anime Podcast is that there are always 3-5 people on the show, it’s like being in a bar and listening to a bunch of friends talking about anime.
It’s the perfect content to listen to while you’re commuting to work, working out, while you draw manga, or anything otaku.
I also had the honor to be invited to one of their podcasts. You can listen to it on YouTube; and for more of their episodes, click here.
Disclaimer: It was my very first time on a podcast, so I was a bit nervous.
Trash Taste is the new kid on the block. With 105 videos as of 2022, they already have 1 million views on YouTube. Trash Taste is about exploring anime, manga, and otaku culture.
The hosts are YouTubers Joey, akaThe Anime Man, Garnt aka Gigguk, and Connor aka Cdawgva and (maybe) occasionally special guests.
These guys are quite funny, so check it out, I’m sure that you will like the podcast.
Note: All of them are big fans of Jojo and constantly talk about JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure, if you also love JoJo, you’ll enjoy the podcast even more.
If you’re a Spanish speaker, you need to check out MultiAnime.
Launched in October 2019, MultiAnime Podcast is a show dedicated to the latest news and information on Anime, Video Games, Manga, Movies, TV, and everything a geek wants to know.
Led by Alex; Andy, along with special guests, the MultiAnime Podcast airs every Monday.
I personally like how they tell you the news, it’s pretty fun. Usually, they first give anime news, and then they talk about a specific topic of each episode. If you speak Spanish, definitely listen to this podcast.
Alex and Andy put a lot of effort into bringing you the best news and content in Spanish.
Their content is on Anchor, YouTube, Spotify, Apple, and Google Podcast.
I was also invited to their podcast. You can listen to it here,
