Starting your first anime podcast can be challenging
Read to get a concise list of where and how to start!
I'm not here to persuade you into watching anime. If you've clicked on this story, there's a good chance you're already hooked. You might be interested in checking out some of these podcasts if you're in as deep as I am.
One of the main reasons I enjoy podcasts about anime is that they are produced by people who love anime. I'm just getting into podcasts recently, but I've been a fan of anime for years. It's always interesting to listen to a discussion about anime from people who are fans but aren't weird about it.
A lot of these podcasts are rewatch podcasts, which is to be expected with podcasts about media. I've added in some other types of anime podcasts to keep things interesting, such as improv. Some of these shows are clearly about the anime show itself, while others wear their anime influences on their sleeves.
There are a lot of podcasts out there, so it can be tough to find the right one for you. I've selected some of my favorite anime podcasts that I think every fan should check out at least once. These shows will introduce you to new anime, give you insights on classic titles, and have great discussions about the medium as a whole. Whether or not you're interested in starting your own podcast, these are all entertaining listens that any fan would enjoy.

Finally, Toonami Faithful Podcast is great for long-time fans of the block who want to reminisce about the good old days.
