For many years ESLPod.com offered free podcasts for learners of English. You could listen to them online or download the mp3 files for free, and they only asked for payment for extras: learning guides, PDFs etc. So I posted links to many of their podcasts on my site for my students, in the categories of "Listening" and "Audio".
But starting in December 2016, ESLPod.com have made big changes to their website, and all the podcasts (even the ones from the past) are now behind a paywall: that means they now require payment (either a monthly subcription of US$10-15, or you can purchase specific podcasts) to listen to or download. All links to their podcasts are now broken, including the many I have posted here on my website.
I will investigate alternatives and post them if I can find some. But fixing or deleting all those links could take a lot of time, and I might not find them all. Eventually I might just decide to delete those posts completely, as without the ESLPod podcasts many will be empty.
In the meantime, I'll leave the names of the podcasts in my blog posts in case you want to find them some other way (e.g. you decide to register and pay ESLPod.com to access them.) UPDATE: Students in China might find ESLPod podcasts on Lizhi.fm (荔枝).
UPDATE 2016-12-26: All ESLPod.com links changed to Lizhi.fm. For more info, see this post: ESLPod Links Broken.
