The J-Talk Podcast

is creating a podcast on Japanese football.




per month


Since 2012, The J-Talk Podcast has set the standard in podcasting on the J.League and Japan National Team in English (because we're the only ones doing it).
Hosted by Ben Maxwell and featuring a rotating cast of knowledgeable and passionate guests including football journalists, analysts, and club-specific correspondents, J-Talk continues to satisfy it's ever-expanding listenership, and support from our patrons has enabled us to launch a new podcast in 2019, the critically acclaimed J-Talk: Extra Time, focusing on J2.
YOUR contribution will allow us to continue to publish our two main podcasts every week, and also special episodes like our two Groundhopping Specials – to which Patreon supporters have had exclusive early access.
Find us on the web at, and download new episodes from iTunes or your favourite podcatcher.
All support is greatly appreciated.
