Podcast Latest

I tend to update every so often about the state of Portuguese language podcasts. Currently, Practice Portuguese seems to have entered another lull. Their podcasts are very infrequent and I have cancelled my subs because I don’t use the website much and it felt like I had given them enough money, but I might start it again if they seem to be doing more things I can use.


Meanwhile, my current favourite, Portuguese with Carla has followed their example by using a subscription model. They’re going to start releasing shorter podcasts for the general public and the full thing only for Carla’s own personal students. Since her time is limited and she charges pretty high-end rates, I can’t imagine there will be many of those, so it’ll be a pretty limited listenership, I should think. The first series, with 50 episodes, is still available though and still well worth a listen, especially for newbies, since it is very slow and very gentle but doesn’t lack depth! I think they are expanding in other areas too, and they even have a range of t-shirts with portuguese phrases on them*.

Say it in Portuguese is still knocking out the occasinal episode but is fairly dormant and Portuguese Lab Podcast seems to be chugging along, although I must admit I haven’t really got to grips with it yet.


*Speaking of t-shirts, I am definitely having something off Cão Azul next birthday…
