Podtaku is a podcast-based YouTube channel, which features two anime-related podcasts, where they talk about random anime topics.  The first one is Podtaku, and the second one is J-Taku.  Podtaku is about unfocused freeform discussions about anything and everything anime and manga related; they never plan out what they're talkin gabout, and it just happens.  It comprises of the A-Team, unless for any reason one of them is on Hiatus, then a member of B-Team can be chosen.  J-Taku is a semi-focused discussion about a specific topic related to anime or manga; they may get a bit off topic here, but they always try to stay on track until the end to the best of their ability.  This comprises of AT LEAST one, (but possibly more), member of the A-Team, as several members of the B-Team.  

As of Podtaku Episode 37:  The Time Skip Episode a few things were announced.  First, J-Taku is dead for the forseeable future, and Podtaku will become a "community podcast" where members from the previously known "B-Team" will be allowed to join, as well as other members of the anime community that agree to come on.  In addition Jean from the A-Team and Sooin from the B-Team have left the podcast, and will be away from the podcast for the forseeable future.
