This is not only an excellent ESL program, but an excellent business news analysis program as well - top notch quality. I've lived and worked in the US for more than 30 years with an MBA. Nevertheless, after listening to 3 podcasts I am hooked. The measured pace of speech in the podcast dramatically increased my comprehension of complex business topics: Forex, Google Vs. Apple, etc. I never speak that slow myself. But what a difference it makes to have enough time to reconstruct in my mind what I have just heard.
