Podcast Directory

In February 2023, I polled my Twitter followers about their favorite anime and manga podcasts, then compiled their suggestions into a master list. The list is organized alphabetically, with links to each podcast’s home page. To suggest an addition to the list or request a correction, please contact me through my Twitter account (@manga_critic).
