…I agree with your main point that listeners forget it's a learning program. That is very true for me - I do study hard with other materials, but when I am using NSS it's not studying at all.
In addition, another thing I really like about NSS is that although it's presented slowly and is somewhat less complicated than usual texts for native speakers, it doesn't talk down to the listeners. You always write the program as if writing to a friend or another adult, not like you would write it to a child. I think many language learning tools make this big mistake, where they treat listeners like kids.
I also particularly enjoy the personal tone that you have in the dialogues. Unlike something impersonal like reading CNN en Español, it helps to feel like I'm getting to know both you and Jorge (and even the guest hosts).
