Interesting Spanish podcasts?
Hi, I'm looking for a podcast in Spanish to listen to on my daily commute in order to improve my listening abilities. Hopefully it would be something with an interesting subject (e.g. science/computer science/history/economy) and not just idle talk with the sole purpose of listening to Spanish. The catch is that I still need the Spanish to be relatively simple (If I can use Notes In Spanish as a benchmark, I'd say I'm somewhere between intermediate and advanced) And ideally it would have a transcript I can go to when I get home, to fill the gaps I couldn't understand (but that's not a must).
Anyone knows my dream-podcast?
It's at normal conversation speed, but Radio Ambulante has transcripts and translations of each show. They have been around for a while and are now syndicated by NPR. The episodes are about various topics related to life in Latin America and the US. I'd say the English-language show it most closely resembles is This American Life.
I recommend A Mi Aire, by podclub. I think you will like it. It is sort of blog style but covers a variety of topics with a transcript and language that is challenging but not too difficult.
They're great, but after listening to all of their intermediate podcasts I'm looking for someone else to listen to :)
I like the Duolingo podcasts. They have interesting stories, relatively simple Spanish, and even have some English narration so you can understand the story better. :)
