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.


Hi! I think "News in slow Spanish" may be your thing.


Tried it out and it sounds like it just might be. Thanks!


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.


Go onto the Duolingo podcasts Hope this helped


Notes in Spanish is good too.


They're great, but after listening to all of their intermediate podcasts I'm looking for someone else to listen to :)

    you might try coffee break Spanish


    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. :)
