That is a good place with German podcast but they are mostly without transcript. And a lot of podcasts at podcast.de are from the public radio stations. You know that I started to get the allowance of some podcasters to transcribe their content and import it to LingQ but it is hard work :wink: From public radio or TV stations we will not get the allowance. But it is very good content if you search for audio or video without transcript.

I also recommend
http://podster.de/ and
http://www.dopcast.de/.

For watching German TV I recommend
