I’ve done a post about my favorite podcasts in Spanish, now I will speak about podcasts in French. Most of these podcasts aren’t to learn the language; these podcasts are for those who already have a good level of understanding in the language.
Johan is the creator of “Français Authentique”, he has a French course with 7 basic rules. The podcasts are free and constantly updated. Typically, podcasts are on French expressions, but, he also talks a little about his personal life and travels. Johan speaks slowly, he pronounces the words clearly and he repeats a lot the same expressions and words, a great podcast to improve your understanding of French.
