Meric beaucoup, Eric! It seems that the previous links to the PodClub podcasts are no longer operable. As you and I discussed, perhaps the site owners, klubschule migros, could be persuaded to restore the links in support of your project of hosting them on the Yojik website.

Another possibility might be iTunes. In the original thread (the two threads should be merged) aokoye commented as follows:
aokoye wrote:This is my first time hearing of these podcasts. While it's sad that they group of people making them have decided to shutend the serieses, it looks like it was a massive undertaking done by not a whole lot of staff.

All that said, it appears that you can download all of the podcasts via iTunes in one fail swoop. It's the PDFs that would take longer. Obviously that's not useful for people who don't or can't use iTunes, but it's a start. I haven't looked to see if the same is true with other RSS aggregators.
As a senior member of the world's least technologically skilled peasantry, I am not be able to assist in either option.

As a separate comment, I have requested that the two threads dealing with the PodClub podcasts be merged.

Given that it's past Dec. 31st, 2019, I don't know that the PodCub podcasts are available for download via iTunes anymore. I'm almost positive that they aren't. When they were it was as simple as downloading the entire catalogue of any other podcast via iTunes. It looks like you can find the last 30 episodes of most of their podcasts on on Soundcloud.

I would be very hesitant to host any of the episodes without the permission of Migros, the organization that appears to have produced all of the podcasts in question. If you find that it's legally admissible to do so and/or you get their permission then have at it. That said I wouldn't be shocked if hosting them without their permission was a breach in copyright.

We'll ask for permission before posting them on the Yojik.

If you do end up getting permission, send me a PM and I'll send over the 85 episodes of Balades that I downloaded.

Hello, my name is Thierry and I am living in Belgium - I am learning italian for quite a few years and I was quite happy with the al dente podcast.
I have downloaded all the mp3s but does anyone have the text (pdf) of Al dente podcast?
I am trying to find them on the net but no luck...
I am looking for the last 50 episodes.
Thanks for your response.

Thierry
