There is a network of "Polish Cultural Institutes". The London one advertises an online learn polish course focused on children, this seems to be a partnership with a web-radio station called 'Fun Kids'.

eBooks/audio books - empik.com
I have a huge collection of fairly short stories (as PDFs) with accompanying audio (each one is about 5 minutes) as well as the Polish translation of one of my favorite novels (in ebook format) that I bought online from Empik (which is an amazing website for audibooks and ebooks in Polish).

Here’s a list of public television programs with audio description:
http://www.tvp.pl/dostepnosc/filmy-z-napisami-w-serwisie-tvppl

There are 66 pages to look into if you have the time, but just the very first position “Boso przez świat” is great. It’s a travel program hosted by the controversial Wojciech Cejrowski. Very entertaining and insightful.

The most popular Polish VOD platforms:
https://vod.tvp.pl/
https://player.pl/
https://www.ipla.tv/
Most of the content is free, but there are a lot of commercials

Textbooks and other resources

Kiedyś wrócisz tu..., cz. II: By szukać swoich dróg i gwiazd (C1)

I do know of textbooks meant for advanced students of Polish who want to improve their ability in reading comprehension but these aren't conventional textbooks like "Kiedyś wrócisz tu...".

- Kto czyta - nie błądzi. Podręcznik do nauki języka polskiego. Ćwiczenia rozwijające sprawność czytania (B2, C1) (focuses on improving reading comprehension)
- Na łamach prasy, cz. I. Podręcznik do nauki języka polskiego. Ćwiczenia rozwijające sprawność czytania (C2) (focuses on improving reading comprehension with newspaper articles)
- Na łamach prasy, cz. II. Podręcznik do nauki języka polskiego. Ćwiczenia rozwijające sprawność czytania (C2) (focuses on improving reading comprehension with newspaper articles)
- Per aspera ad astra. Podręcznik do nauki języka polskiego. Ćwiczenia rozwijające sprawność czytania (C1) (focuses on improving reading comprehension)

Each of these titles is in the target language.

Mr.RealPolish has been an absolute godsend for me. I initially attempted to learn Polish by attending a language school in Krakow and spending 2 months in Poland. I got a survival level of Polish which I immediately forgot upon returning to my own country. I had zero listening comprehension ability. Couldn't find any good online resources at that time, but this past year I have been devouring the resources made by "Mr. Real Polish". Worth every penny.

1) Mr. Real Polish. I started out with his 100 Daily Stories for absolute beginners and I'm now more than halfway through the 365 stories for intermediate learners. The best resource I've ever been able to find for Polish. After ~7 months (650+ hours) I was surprised to find that I could understand most of what I overhead on a Polish news program and can understand everything my family says to each other in Polish (previously I had no comprehension whatsoever).

2) Easy Polish (from the youtube channel series "Easy Languages"). They conduct street interviews on a different topic, each video is captioned in both Polish and English. I've been using this to train myself to understand the high-speed of spoken Polish.

3) iTunes has a few free Polish podcast series: (a) Bloggy Polish, and (b) Polski z Grazyna.

Very interesting! Thank you for letting us now about this method. Could you please give us some more information? Is this resource like Orberg's LLPSI, i.e. is the vocabulary explained by little drawings and word definitions in the target language?

I found out that this text is also available with English (http://www.polandbymail.com/i/6349/we-learn-polish-2-books-2-cds.htm), French, German and, probably, Italian explanations. The newer editions of this book come with CDs or MP3s. The audio can be bought separately (http://www.wiedza.pl/mobile/pl/p/Uczymy-sie-polskiego.-1---2-CD/33).

I bookmarked “Uczmy, się, Polskiego” sometime ago but can no longer remember exactly why I did so. In any event, for those who are interested, the audio recordings seem to be available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUXpY6vbPWdT97GzbkSwUGSMYFdyVIQ0_
