Podcast for learning Russian!

Hi there! Recently I've made a podcast for those who learn Russian. It might be difficult because I use words which are not so common. Also it contains a quote from War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy.This is my first attempt and I'd like to continue so I need your remarks. Or maybe you can offer me some topics to discuss in my podcast. 

This is the link:

Of course it depends on what level you are aiming for but generally the speech is clear and not too fast. It did seem to end a little abruptly, and would be better with some closing remarks. Also I think a transcript is a must for study. If there are any rare words it would be a good idea to make a little glossary. As for topics maybe you could continue to quote books, or take some dialog from films, so as to teach the language and the culture at the same time. I hope the feedback helps!

I agree with Neofight78's comments - I could still follow the audio with my lower level of Russian, which means you're speaking at the right speed and with the right clarity. I liked the background music as a nice touch!


A transcript plus a glossary would really help, as well as a clear beginning and ending. This could mean "theme music" (eg. the Очень по-русски podcast) or some typical phrases to begin and end the podcast. You can also listen to a few other podcasts to get some ideas on giving the podcast some shape (eg. Kalyespeak, The Kimchigirls, Chai and Conversation, Slovak Snack, KWOW, Radio Arlecchino etc - all different languages and formats but I think there are some ideas worth stealing.)))


Good work!
