So, I want to learn French quicker, and I figured that I don't really listen much... I mean, English is easy to learn, you just read it and listen to it all the time through the Internet, TV shows, movies etc. But French? I'm particularly interested in Science Documentaries and Lectures, Cartoons and Technology podcasts. I just need something to listen to while I do other things, to start recognizing the patterns of the language...
Let me at least try to give some pointers (I will append if I find more ideas)...
First, replay TV (some sites might check your geographical origin, but a proxy might fix it). Arte (French-German channel) has Arte+7 replay with many kinds of documentaries, sometimes related to scientific issues, as well as a recurring one, X:enius revolving around scientific/societal subjects, which you might enjoy. Also try France 4 (for documentaries and cartoons, most for kids, some a little more mature) or France 5 (many documentaries) on Pluzz.
I also found Lapin.org with comics strips, it has XKCD in French but also other stuff.
You could take a look at "FUN" (please don't laugh, it's actually France Université Numérique :-\ ) for some MOOCs, they have many subjects, hopefully you could find some of interest.
If you are interested in sciences and have a correct level, I higly recommend Sur les épaules de Darwin, a weekly science radio broadcast. It is intended for neophytes, so technical vocabulary is always explained. It gets a bit lyrical sometimes which may or may not be an issue, but the speaker has the best voice I know, is always very clear and the broadcasts are always entertaining.
If you are interested in Maths, check out Denis Guedj's books, in the same vein.
