Good

This podcast is great for intermediates. Beginners should go and learn basic verbs/conjugations first, etc. (I recommend Duolingo as a place to start).

I’m not sure here but I assume there are no transcripts for these lessons? I play the episodes in half-speed as I’m still learning how to detect subtle phonetic differences between words but then I hear words that I don’t recognise.

As someone who is still only intermediate, I find it difficult to estimate how some words are spelt based on how they’re pronounced, so at times, I’m left not knowing the word and how to research it. I feel like a transcript or a glossary would really help!

En tout cas, good podcasts!

University homework

I subscribed to this podcast about 2 years ago and recommend pre-paying for a pack of their pdfs so that you can download the sheets with vocab that suit your level. I recommend LFBP to my students studying French at Plymouth University. Certain episodes are perfect as homework activities in preparation for the Listening Exam at the end of term.
