Great Podcast! It's hard to find a good intermediate spanish podcast but this one fits the bill. The conversations are engaging and the Spanish is slow enough for an intermediate Spanish speaker to understand but not annoyingly slow. Plus Rob and Liz have cute, playful banter which is fun to listen too! I feel like this Podcast is really helping me advance my Spanish.


Intermediate Spanish from Rob and liz of Spanish Obsessed. Couple Liz and Rob (Colombian and English) have a range of natural, engaging conversations in slow Spanish. We talk slow enough so that you can understand everything, but that doesn’t stop our conversations from being 100% authentic! We cover a variety of topics, equipping you in the process with super cool Spanish phrases which are actually used, as well as nuggets of grammar, pronunciation, and culture. Listen to Liz's crystalline Colombian Spanish, but we also talk with speakers with a variety of different accents. We update weekly, so be sure to subscribe using the button on the left to stay up to date. Also, check out our world of Spanish material, articles, culture and general Spanish love at!
