Downloading from Podclub before it's gone

Postby Lianne » Tue Dec 24, 2019 1:36 am

We're now just a week away from Podclub shutting down and taking all its wonderful podcasts with it! (Except for the most recent 50 episodes of each show, I think, via Soundcloud.) I've seen a lot of people talking about downloading the mp3s and PDFs while they're still available on the website, but I don't think I've seen any mention of us working together to share this task. Would anyone be interested in that?

Currently I'm working on downloading the episodes of Al dente, one of the Italian podcasts. There are a lot more I'd like to do but I don't know if I'll get around to them all during the holidays. But I would be happy to share what I do manage to download via Dropbox or Google Drive. If a bunch of us just did the work on one show and then shared the fruits of our labour, we could save a nice resource for all of us. :)

I still have the Podclub German (Deutsch) files and, in the event that anyone would like to post them to a dropbox or anywhere else on the internet, I would be pleased to upload them to the Sprend.com file-sharing website …

Natürlich bleiben die bestehenden Podcasts auch nach Jahresende 2019 zugänglich. Ab 1. November 2019 stehen pro Sprache die letzten 30 Episoden auf soundcloud.com/podclub zur Verfügung.


I read the text differently. In the new year the production of the series will be discontinued together with some of the old services. All the existing podcasts however willl continue to be available.
The soundcloud offer will be something addiitional.

It is definitely a bit ambiguous in its wording! But the first line in the English version is "Podclub.ch as well as the PodClub app, however, will still be available until December 31, 2019." This certainly seems to suggest that Podclub.ch will be gone in the new year.

Thanks. I have a friend who's learning Swiss German so this looks like a potentially valuable find.

Of course, the existing podcasts will remain accessible after the end of 2019.

Was anyone else able to grab copies of the podcasts/transcriptions? From what I can see podclub.ch is completely gone and ~30 eps. of six series are all that's left on Soundcloud.
I have Balades [85] and L'avis de Marie saved [154 mp3 files, 157 PDFs].

Welp, guess this was wrong.
