Our subscribers say:

I really enjoy News in Slow French. I bounce around between 4-5 different French podcasts, and yours is my favorite. Love the sense of humor you share in the program, and breaking the podcast into a few different segments keeps things moving along nicely. The news format is good, of course, because I've likely heard the stories already, so it's easier to keep up and fill in any language gaps.
