SBS Radio, Great for Interpreters!!!

Recently I was looking for an app or an audio book that was in French so I could improve my listening skills when I h"app"ened upon SBS Radio. It is a radio station that does the news in several different languages. It is designed for people from Australia that don't speak English, and want to hear the news in whatever language they speak, but I thought it would be a great tool for interpreters to improve their listening skills. The app is free, and if you want to download old broadcasts I believe those are free as well.  Happy Listening Terps!
