The Assimil course is amazing, it's the only resource i used for learning Catalan and had no trouble communicating, reading, watching TV/movies, etc. afterwards. Prof. Argüelles highly recommended it as well.

There's a podcast called Sobretaula that seems interesting. It's unscripted conversation where the hosts answer questions from listeners. For example, from the most recent episode: What is the spiciest food in the world and how is that measured? How much time do we spend at traffic lights? Why do people get tattoos? My Catalan is not at a level where I can understand very much yet, but it seems like something I'll enjoy listening to down the road.

The website that I linked to above doesn't have the first several episodes, but they can be downloaded here.
