What are some good podcasts in Portuguese? I'm not looking for lessons of Portuguese, just interesting, listenable content about any topic.
Longer version: I am looking for good podcasts to help train my ear for listening to Portuguese. Ideally, it would be something along the lines of what the RFI has for French, the Journal en français facile
, but it doesn't necessarily need to be the news. Does anything at all like this exist for Portuguese? I sorted through iTunes, old AskMes and Google, but the only useful things I came up with were this thread
, which recommended Pessoal & Transmissível and seems like a good start, this thread
, which got no answers, and this one
, which was mostly about music.
Ideal characteristics: Short (15 minutes or less), slower paced, simplified language, interesting content about any topic (although perhaps the more universal the better, e.g., world news)
Other relevant information: I'm not particular about peninsular vs. Brazilian Portuguese (although Brazilian is probably preferable), and this is something that would ultimately be for recommendation to university-level beginner students of Portuguese (and a friend who is also trying to improve his listening skills).
