I am a long time ChinesePod student dating back to 2008. I quit the subscription after about a year after it moved to Taipei. I felt at the time that the lessons did not serve my needs any longer. Jenny Zhu, now living in Vancouver, was the best Chinese teacher on staff along with her cohorts John Pasden, David Zhou, Vera, et. al. Their mandarin accent was perfect for me, not the case with the current hosts, no slight intended - it’s only a matter of preference. Recently I bought a .99 special for a month to see how Chinese Pod was doing. Although i enjoy the content which i downloaded for future practice, there is no incentive for me to continue beyond the 30 days. I suggest people also look to iMandarinpod for authentic Chinese lessons from Tianjin, China. Another excellent site that concentrates more on traditional culture, history and current events and media vocabulary. I wish Chinesepod well, I hope their future is bright and that the reorganization brings new talent and energies.
