锵锵三人行 looks quite interesting - the list of titles makes it look pretty eclectic and so far

I ran into this suggestion over in the 3-month-thread and I loved it. It's advanced enough, but I can follow it without a transcript, and I think that I'll make this a daily listening exercise for the next few months.

Fancyradio.com (异想电波) is worth a look. It hosts a few different podcast programs that range from ghost stories to fairy tales to essays. Decent production value.

锵锵三人行 is great. It's an unofficial goal of mine for the year to get good enough to completely follow it. As is, I understand some parts, but not others. I'm also going to have a look at RTI.

I searched for 中文 on iTunes and found a podcast called

翼之声中文配音社团

My Chinese sucks now and I don't understand 90% of what is being said, so I still don't know what the podcast is about, but it has very entertaining voice actors. I think it's some kind of fan dub of a cartoon but I'm not sure. The language level is relatively low since I think it's aimed for children.

Where can I find podcasts in Chinese?

I'm not talking about podcasts specifically aimed at foreigners learning Chinese.

I'm talking about actual Chinese language podcasts intended for a native Chinese speaking audience.

I wouldn't search 中文。Typically native material doen't mention the language. In general language is only mentioned for language learning material and for more international oriented material with a language choice. I'ld rather search for the subject you're interested in (in Chinese) or for 播客 (podcast). A combination of 播客 and the subject you're interested in would probably yield the best results.

If you search using 中文 you'll find a number of daily news podcasts which are produced by Voice of America, Deutch-Welle, SBS Australia, etc etc etc, or at least there were when I subscribed to a lot of them a year or so ago.

Agreed that if the OP has a specific subject in mind and is capable of/comfortable searching in Chinese that he should do what you suggested; I assumed this wasn't the case.

If you search something like "的", you can see all the podcasts with 的 either in the title of the podcast or any of its episodes.

One of my favorite ones, which I have listened to for over 4 years or so, is RFA's 中国一周, which is basically a 15 minute weekly wrap-up of political news from China.

Of course, some may disagree with the fairly one-sided viewpoints expressed, but from the point of view of a Chinese learner, it's fairly good because they discuss political/news-type stuff, but it's relatively easier to understand since they do it in a more conversational manner.

Merged with a long-running discussion. To be honest if you just want podcast-type listening material and don't actually need it delivered regularly like a current podcast, you can do worse than go back to the antiwave and Princess Remy archives - there's plenty of excellent content in both.

Just found a podcast that I like alot called 友的聊播客 (http://www.ydlbk.com/). It's a bunch of young guys that talk about pop culture and modern life in Beijing. Lots of talk about movies and gadgets -- recently there have been episodes about Tim Cook's visit to China, becoming a dad, Jeremy Lin, Draw Something, and Weibo's new 悄悄关注 function. I find the hosts easy to understand and the topics actually interesting. It's the first podcast for natives that I can listen to casually.

There is a very interesting and popular Chinese podcast that targets teenager students called 青春愛消遣

The two DJs are college students from Taiwan, they talk about funny news, school life, movies, and some topics that are closer to teenagers in an amusing way!

And because it is for native Chinese speakers, it's authentic and they're talking at a normal speed.

I think it is one of the funniest Chinese talk show podcasts that you can suscribe for free

Have been listening to mostly podcasts in English, but thought I'd add some Chinese ones to the mix and found these that I can recommend:

 

坏蛋调频 is a rock/indie music show with two co-hosts, a mix of musician interviews and selections from albums.  The two hosts are pretty funny, though they tend to say cao a bit much :).

坏蛋调频

 

一个人的书房 is a podcast about books.  I've only listened to one show so far.  It was a reading of an essay from Wang Xiaobo's 沉默的大多数.  If they have a show on Wang Xiaobo, their taste can't be too bad.

http://player.fm/series/-20028

一个人的书房

 

Here is an article about the podcast.  Appears to have just launched.

武汉女人创立“一个人的书房”电台
 
Both programs should be available on your favorite podcast programs/apps.

Does anyone have any more recent suggestions for podcasts?

 

I've been listening to 原来是这样 (from a suggestion from Imron I saw on a thread somewhere) and 心理开花 both of which I enjoy. 

 

Something similar but perhaps less science focused and more concerned with current events society etc would be great. Although my interests are pretty broad so hit me with anything you've enjoyed listening to! 

 

Standard Mandarin is not a requirement and I actually wouldn't mind someone with a bit of an accent or who speaks fast to keep it challenging. 

 

Any suggestions would be great!

Just a bump to say how delighted I am the Princess Remy archives are still online. Can't remember what brought her to mind, but just spent a happy 15 minutes reacquainting myself with the back catalogue.
