This is one of the best comprehensible input channels I’ve found so far! That means that she gives you plenty of listening practice without spending five minutes speaking English for every minute of Chinese. There is often no English spoken at all. The podcast version can be found by searching for "Comprehensible Chinese", but if you're a complete beginner, you might want to watch the videos on YouTube as well. The difficult level is carefully controlled, and the host repeats, rephrases, circles and many other things to help you understand even with a limited vocabulary. 

Pros: Only Chinese, engaging, built-in repetition, rephrasing and circling.

Cons: Some episodes have to be watched (she refers to images shown on screen sometimes)

Sample video: Self-introduction in Chinese | my mum and my boyfriend
