This is the best French-learning podcast I've found for people at the intermediate level, hands down. I studied French in high school and college many years ago, and have been trying, off and on, to progress through self-study for decades. My results had been lukewarm at best. I struggle more with comprehension than I do with expression. However, since finding Learn French by Podcast (as well as my other favorite teacher on YouTube--Johan Tekfak from Français Authentique...intermediates, check him out as well) and diligently making my way through the lessons almost daily, my comprehension has greatly improved. I love that the topics covered are things you might talk about to a friend, not made-up and inauthentic dialogs about going to "la piscine avec Luc." I listened to one this morning that was all about Hugh being called out for being a victim of cell phone inattention syndrome, as he was supposed to be having a conversation but was instead half-looking at his phone the whole time. I learned how to say "I'll make a deal/bet with you." Yesterday I learned how to express the metaphor of "backing the right horse." Terrific stuff. But as others have said, the podcast is not targeted for beginners.
