I hear the content on JapanesePod is great, but the organization is not so good… and I agree completely with this. Wanikani - thanks team! - is awesome because I log in, and instantly know where to start studying. With JapanesePod I’m not really clear which podcasts are actually worth listening to (as I know there is a lot of overlap between them) or what order they are worth going through in. I saw some blog a few months back with a curated order, but I can’t find it again and have no idea if the advice is out of date.
On that note, if there is a way to practice listening to Japanese that has a bit more of that “wanikani” feel, I’d be very interested in hearing about it. AFAIK, JapanesePod is currently the best in this area, despite the chaoticness of the content, and their overly saturated marketing.
