If you’re looking for French podcasts to throw on your ipod, try a few of these. I have a number of different podcasts all organized into a smart playlist on my ipod– it all sort of flows together like a multilingual radio station…. Of special note is the United Nations podcast– if you need to follow up with something, often times you’ll find a transcript of their stories at the UN Radio site.
Why not simply browse the podcast directory?
Don’t forget that you can click on the “Change Country” link at the bottom of the podcast page in itunes—if you select France then why not try out some random ‘picks’ from categories that appeal to you? If sports is your thing in English, then you should definitely be looking to French sportscasters as an *ideal* learning resource.
