Duolingo consistently puts the horse in front of the cart - finding genuinely interesting stories which are well worth listening to in their own right, then presenting them in clear intermediate French, which must take some work. Brilliant.

This podcast is phenomenal. The stories are so rich and relevant to the world that we live in today and I appreciate the level of research and journalism that's gone into producing it. The format makes the French learning aspect very natural and I've learnt much more beyond my expectation. I hope to hear more of these diverse human stories being told in Season 2.
