I have tried a few of their podcasts when I first started using podcasts. I liked that they have a lot of languages on there.
What I didn't like was that when practising on their site, at least when I was a member, they didn't include the gender of the noun by using the article, which for some languages is very important. They may have changed that now. There were other things I didn't like but that was the main one.
As to what I'd prefer, I have recently found the series "news in slow..." which I'm trying out the free lessons, so far I really like it. I like that it is news in the language but simplified to be more understandable. They also have grammar points etc.
