Crazy Japanese podcast

Tell me what you think of this idea.

Last weekend when Oliver was visiting, Tony and I started playing a new game. I’d say something totally insane in English like, “May I please poke your eyes out with my chopsticks?” or “I made you a bracelet from my nosehair. I hope you like it,” and he’d translate it into Japanese. Or he’d say something equally strange in Japanese (usually having to do with poop, because he’s nine years old) and I’d say it in English.

Would this work as a podcast with audience participation? I think it would be a fun way to learn English/Japanese. Of course we’d keep it clean. Believe it or not, Tony still doesn’t know bad words in English, and I want to keep it that way. Although he did say to my mother once when he was about two years old, “You’re a FIRE BITCH!” He was just putting sounds together, and that’s what came out. You should have seen the look on her face. Priceless.

  1. Hmmm, good idea… Sound like it should be a call-in thing. You should look into TalkShoe or maybe a SkypeCast. I know that in TalkShoe, the host can mute callers (or put them on hold) until it’s time for them to talk, like a real radio call-in program. With SkypeCast, you have to be using the latest Windows version of Skype, so that would be a no-go for us Mac users. Or, in the words of Mr. T, “I’ve got a lovely bunch of emasculated sinus polyps, fool!”
