Thanks for this. I never know what to look for on RTVE. This seems fantastic!

They also show extracts, which have no subtitles.
To get the subtitles you must download the full-hour program.

Thanks for sharing. I wanted to promote workaudiobook in case you haven't heard about it yet. As an intermediate(?) in Spanish I find it a god-send since it's so efficient! I set it so it repeats each chunk 7 times before moving onto the next chunk. I don't know where you're at with Spanish but I still can't hear certain sounds so I love the automatic repetition function of this program.

Thanks, I have added it to my list. I knew it but don't use it, since I can do the splitting in chunks and repetition functions with my stand-alone Minidisc Recorder very comfortably.
