As a beginner in Mandarin, this podcast has really become invaluable. Unlike others where you must hunt down a transcript, this one already includes one for iPod users. And it includes the traditional, simplified, English, and pingyin characters for those who are visual learners as pingyin really does help with pronouciation. The best part is that the lessons are actually entertaining and focus not only on the language but also the culture and characteristics China.
