For people who want to tune in their ear to the sound of Esperanto in longer but still controlled bursts you might want to check out the recent youtube videos by Alex Miller. He is reading aloud an Esperanto translation of some Japanese fables. In one version he just reads for a little over an hour and in a second, more beginner friendly version he also takes a break between each story to offer a selection of potentially unknown vocabulary.

If you hunt around on the internet for Japenaj Fabeloj you might even be able to locate a pdf of the book so you can do a read-along.

Alex is a trained actor so his reading is expressive and immersive bringing the stories to life nicely. They are great fun and I suspect these videos are something I will be looking at quite a bit over time.

Someone linked these earlier as well: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLl5PRFz0DHxZFcwSHcLDDkVzVq553ULx3

I haven't had a chance to listen, but hey.

I would adore if someone provided some podcasts. I have a commute which I could use for some comprehension practice!

http://esperanto-radio.com/ has a link called Mp3listo, which has links to the various MP3s that make up the current program. Very handy download for listening to Esperanto podcasts without an internet connection.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E7RFJl1XVk is a prelego by Orlando Raolo called, Kiel ne plu resti eterna komencanto. "How not to stay a beginner in Esperanto".

Also, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E7RFJl1XVk is a lecture by Mark Fettes about Esperantic Studies Foundation (ESF). It is all in Esperanto and covers a lot of good programs and websites that ESF has supported.

You used to be able to convert YouTube to mp3? I found some converter on the internet, but haven't done that for years ...

Mi konsentas! Alex Miller's YouTube videos are always useful and entertaining.

Another useful resource can be found below - YouTube videos on various subjects made by an Austrian Esperantist who is a biology teacher:

Although he speaks rather more quickly than Alex Miller, I find his videos useful for "tuning in" to Esperanto.

Mi ankaŭ trovas Oliver Rakontas bona esperanta kanalo. Antaŭe, li nomis ĝin Oliver Esploras.

I also find Oliver Rakontas a good Esperanto channel. Before, he called it Oliver Explores.

I know I'm kind of late to this party. I have a different take on all of this. I would suggest listening to audio book recordings at . They have something like 20 Esperanto audio books in their collection. That's hardly extensive and much of it seems to have been taken from the library of Project Gutenberg, but it's a large enough sample to be useful.
