The Bob and Rob Show is a short podcast that is aimed at people who are trying to learn English. While they say their material is suitable for all levels, I think that beginners (and maybe even intermediates) would have a hard time learning anything constructive here. First of all, when they are bantering with each other, both Bob and Rob speak rather quickly. This probably makes it difficult for a beginner to follow the gist of the conversation. Second, they tend to use a lot of idiomatic phrases that beginning language learners would not understand.

When they start talking about the grammatical topic of the week, things get much better. They explain the grammar rules pretty well and they give good examples.

Overall, I think this podcast could be useful for higher intermediate and advanced students.

(By the way, I wish they would lose that cheesy laugh track!)

I've caught up with all the shows Bob and Rob did, after one of my friends sent me the link.
I first thought that it was too easy for me although I don't consider my English level as advanced, but I really enjoy the "both sides of the pond" sequence and the happy atmosphere that both speakers create (please keep the cheesy laugh track!).
I wished that all native English speakers were that clear when speaking...
