Interesting podcasts?

Postby Vedun » Wed Mar 20, 2019 6:23 pm

What are some interesting podcasts in your target languages? I have nothing to do at work for hours on end and listening to radio gets repetitive quickly.

have you looked into your library?? There are lots of audiobooks available in English as well as in other languages for some libraries ie the bigger ones like the ones in NYC (queens,brooklyn, New york public library).

PULS.de has Die Frage, an unfortunately no-longer-updated yet brilliant and thought-provoking podcast in German. It's one of the only TL things that I really feel disappointed I can't show to my monolingual friends.

If you're interested in German popular science podcasts, check out the following podcasts, which both cover a large variety of topics:

radioWissen RSS iTunes (recent topics: Hitler's early years, Sophocles, smog, sun screen)
SWR2 Wissen RSS iTunes (recent topics: E.T.A. Hoffman, private schools, chat bots, solar power in Africa)

I'd like to revive this moribund thread and request more recommendations, from anyone and everyone. I've only recently gotten into podcasts, and I notice that I spend much more time trying to find decent-quality ones than I do... actually listening.

Language doesn't matter, as long as it's not English. Hit me!
