For listening practice, Ximalaya FM has some podcasts in 方言, search by the name of the dialect or area 话 (Shanghainese dominates, naturally). There are a lot of 'comic' clips of the hysterical-whistle-and-bang variety mixed up, but some are serious and may even have a transcript. 


There's a mooc in 中国大学MOOC, organised by Wuhan University. It is for Chinese students, so it's rather advanced, 

方言与中国文化 (Dialect and Chinese Culture)


It is currently running, which means registration is open. Once you signed in, the course material remains available even after the mooc has finished.
