If you subscribe to this podcast, you get 15 minutes of audios every day (US American English from LA, California). There are three kinds of audios:

bullet the ESL Podcast, which includes a "slow dialogue", then some explanations, and finally a "fast dialogue" at a native rate of speech (this one is best for Intermediate learners),
bullet the English Café, a radio program at a natural conversational speed,

Here is the list of all the podcasts external link you can listen to and download before subscribing, to see if it's good for you.
