100+ German podcasts to practice listening skills

Not all of these links are podcasts, this list includes some radios, but most of these radios’ programs can be subscribed on iTunes, just like a podcast. Some audiobooks are being counted as podcasts and some links with many podcasts/audiobooks in it are being counted as one podcast in this post for simplicity.

I’m not advanced enough to comprehend most of what is said in these podcasts. Furthermore, there are so many hours of podcasts that it would be impossible to listen to it all in a short period of time even being a native in the language. If any of those has sexist, homophobic, racist or any hate-speech conversations, please let me know.

I tried my best to categorize and organize the podcasts, but I understand it is a bit messy. The German subreddit has more audio resources for German learners. This post will be updated if I find more podcasts, if you know interesting ones you want to recommend, send it to me on twitter, I’ll be happy to check it out.
