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. 

 

Whatchu talkin bout Willis?

 

Or...

 

For someone that has never heard of Princess Remy, a brief description?

Preceded by a big beaty booming few seconds of musical intro that is still ringing in my ears even though I've not listened to these podcasts for some years.

大家好,我是黑米喽!

 

I'm definitely not going to go and find the 北京下土了* one from Antiwave. Or.... oh my god, 胖大海 (sp?). I think I only listened to two of his, as I had to listen to each two dozen times before I could even tell where the words where...

 

*That'd probably get you arrested for anti-China sentiment nowadays.

@大块头 Where do you find the transcripts of, e.g., 《2049科技日报》or 《三十早报》? I've just checked in Ximalaya  and can't find them.

How to find transcripts:

  • 《2049科技日报》- I haven't tried it, but the host says you can get podcast transcripts by downloading an app called 知识星球.
  • 《三十早报》- I haven't tried it, but the host says you can get podcast transcripts by following them on WeChat.
  • 《逻辑思维》- You can get podcast transcripts by downloading the 得到 app.

I occasionally listen to this podcast, but I haven't noticed them mention what the name of their wechat 公眾號 actually is. Searching 三十早報 doesn't yield any results for me. Nonetheless good podcast resource.

According to their website their 公众号 is “三十实验室(lab-30)”.

Not really a podcast, but this seems the best place to post - feel free to move if there is a more suitable place. 

Deserves a mention for being beautifully read. Clear, slow, and the language is easy (read with a Beijing accent, sounds a bit strange)

 

Audio-book (有声书) : 老人与海, Chinese translation of Hemingway's (海明威) classic "The Old Man and the Sea", 9 episodes.

http://www.ximalaya.com/youshengshu/3423007/

No transcript in Ximalaya, but the text of the Chinese translation is easy to find as e-book or text /pdf files, search for 老人与海.

新闻酸菜馆》- informal discussion of sensational Chinese news stories

 

Thanks for this one! I only found a 2012 series in Ximalaya, spoken in strong Shanghai (I think) accent, but then found the currently running series (spoken in neutral 破童话) in iTunes Podcasts. Do you know whether there is a transcript somewhere? It's not too hard to understand and one can check the daily newspapers to get hold of the story, but it'd be helpful to have a written transcript to extract the vocabulary.

 

You may like this one:

http://www.ximalaya.com/toutiao/12580785/

Each episode has an extract of one news item. They're very short (great for repeated listening) and they have transcripts - at least most of them seem to have.

 

More short news podcasts here:

Not all have transcripts

Thanks for the podcast suggestions!

I don't think so, unfortunately. About a year ago they read some listener mail that asked this very question, and the answer then was no.

《新闻酸菜馆》- informal discussion of sensational Chinese news stories, as well as interviews to give you a look behind the curtain of certain professions (e.g., interviewing a visa agent to learn more about American birth tourism)

 

This one is great, exactly the kind of content I'm looking for.

The newer episodes are also available at Ximalaya, but the app is pretty confusing. Try adding 2018 to the search.

Two more podcasts with transcript from Ximalaya -  probably best suited to the more literary-inclined among us. 

 

名家散文  (Prose by famous people & Tide Moon)
http://www.ximalaya.com/renwen/4831561/
Short readings from diverse prose with transcrips. Sort of inspirational-late-night slant, very relaxing. Tide Moon is the anchor, she has a nice soothing voice and reads very clearly and slowly.
http://www.ximalaya.com/renwen/4831561/

 

上官文露读书会  (Shanguan Luwen Study Group)
Short articles or book passages by Chinese and international authors. Spoken quite fast but sill clear, especially with the transcripts. Shanguan Wenlu is one of CCTV's news anchors.
http://www.ximalaya.com/renwen/4775707/

I go through 1+ hour of material everyday just walking to and from work everyday so I'm always looking for new stuff.

 

Currently listening to 婊酱 / Bitch up which I find quite enjoyable. The show is basically just two women talking about different sex-related topics.

 

What I like most about it is that you get exposed to a lot of vocab you wouldn't normally encounter as a student. If you study English or Spanish you could learn se- related vocabulary from regular TV-shows, but Chinese TV still seem to be stuck in a Disney cartoon where adults never do anything more intimate than kissing.

I feel very stupid because I can't find transcripts for any that specifically say they have transcripts.
