What People Are Saying:

My favorite podcast for practicing listening. Transcripts are super helpful. Explainer episodes enable learning through context. Appreciate the lack of English and different skill levels


This podcast occupies a unique space in Chinese-teaching podcasts, and it serves a great unmet need for many of us language learners. Most Chinese-teaching products out there are 1) geared toward children with inane stories of farm animals and/or 2) geared toward beginners who need extensive native-language support. This podcast is so unique because it is aimed at an audience who know enough Chinese to understand a podcast narrated entirely in Chinese. It also is aimed at adults with sophisticated themes and stories. Although I can get by fairly well in Chinese conversation, I have been blown away by the sheer number of new vocabulary words I pick up each week. This is truly a remarkable resource and worth subscribing.

I haven't seen anything like this before. It's amazing that it's entirely in Mandarin, but has a lower target vocabulary AND be fluid and professional quality at the same time. I listen to this in bed, in the car, while walking... anytime I can.

These two are great, they seem to genuinely enjoy the podcasts they make and the content is interesting without being overly complicated. They have a way of repeating themselves, or rewording a sentence, in a way that makes learning easier without disrupting the flow of the narrative. I would highly recommend!


Took me from HSK3 to HSK5. If you’re like me and you’ve ran into difficulties improving your listening skills, this is the podcast for you! I was so frustrated that I’ve been studying for so long but I still couldn’t understand TV shows, the news, or people I was talking to. This podcast uses Chinese that is easy to follow along with. The hosts are light hearted and do a great job at explaining the vocabulary. It’s not for beginners, but if you’re intermediate or advanced, I highly recommend this over other podcast. I’ve been listening to it every morning now for almost 2 years! It’s the best way I’ve found to immerse myself with the Chinese language without going to China!
