Podcast Recommendations

I’m really trying to focus on listening comprehension, so I recently started getting more and more podcasts off itunes. I currently have 4.5 days (108 hours) of unlistened podcasts.

There were others that I tried out, but I don’t remember their names.  Most of them spent too much time talking in Mandarin, or the audio quality was poor.  Here are the ones I’ve been listening to and watching:

SBS Cantonese – this I mostly play in the background. I only actively listen to the cooking shows or children’s stories
動漫廢物 – this one I only recently discovered, but they seem very animated so it holds my interest. Every episode is 30+ minutes.
香港電台:一潮天子 – these are all about 5 to 10 minutes. They remind of Loveline
香港電台:人民人情 – although these are 2 minutes, the first 45 seconds is wasted on the introduction.  The rest is still useful since they are trying to introduce vocabulary words and they explain a little bit about the topic
香港電台:空中結緣 – seem to be a collection of stories, and there are a lot of them, and they are each 55 minutes long, so lots of material that is easy to understand

香港電台:HONG KONG.300 – short technology-related videos
香港電台:天下父母經-牛爸爸講古 – some quick children’s cartoons
香港電台:有房出租 – a new TV show that focuses on a house full of renters, I found it somewhat funny but I didn’t understand everything that was going on

  2. Hey, I see you haven’t updated recently, too busy? Anyway, your Cantonese is pretty alright. I was wondering how did you start learning it? Like what did you do?

    Thanks for this post. I’ve been working on my comprehension too, but all I’ve got to listen to is RTHK 1 and 2 and SBS, so the extra links really help.
