Do you listen to podcasts?
I'm one of those "old before their time" people (or possibly "older than I like to think"!). I have always listened to BBC Radio 4, as instigated by my parents who had the news and Archers on during dinner every night. (The Archers is a farm and countryside based "soap opera"/daily 15 min drama that has been running since time began!)
Having grown up with this style of talk radio, podcasts naturally interest and excite me.
Friday Night Comedy (The News Quiz or The Now Show) and The Infinite Monkey Cage, a light-hearted science series. The Now Show is a favourite - very funny comedy sketches about the week's news.
Marathon Talk. It is a great mix of chat, useful running information and fantastic interviews. If you are a runner then I definitely recommend that you check it out. I can't stop listening even when I'm not running!
CoffeeBreak French. Devised and produced by Radio Lingua, these are very well written and have given me a huge amount of confidence and new vocabulary (baring in mind that I am a complete, absolute beginner in French). I usually listen to each episode at least twice, making sure I'm alone (driving or going for a walk by myself) some of the time to practise my atrocious pronunciation! They do lots of other languages too - definitely worth checking it out :)
