How to Spanish Podcast

I alternate reading ( I pay for the ability to look at the interactive transcript) and listening. Is this productive?

This podcast is an awesome place to improve listening comprehension with interesting topics in what seems like a lower intermediate level.


Perhaps a good way to take this to the conversation mat would be to have a native Spanish speaker ask me questions pertaining to a particular episode and I could record progress this way?
