Not bad, but it's far too long with too much information. Not enough breaks or summaries (at all) to make it feel like you've finished one topic before going to the other. Kind of hard to listen to without really concentrating on it.

For the benefit of a new applying JET, this podcast broken down into more manageable bites would make it easier for an applicant to understand the process.

Also it should be noted that this is HIGHLY American specific, and also completely focused on JHS/ES type JET job discussions, with no information about the SHS perspective.
