Spanish language podcasts?

I knew this was going to happen when I moved out of California, but I'm losing my Spanish. Boston doesn't have quite the concentration of Latinos that the San Francisco Bay Area does, and the only time I ever speak Spanish these days is with my roommate's Colombian nanny, and then it's only quick conversations about the weather or what the kids are doing. I'm hoping to join a visitation program for detained immigrants within a few months, but in the meantime I've decided to stop trying to make progress on any new languages and just try to hold on to what I have.

Does anyone know of a good advanced-level podcast in Latin American (preferably Central American) Spanish? I still listen to my old Puerta del Sol audiomagazines, but they're mostly in Castilian Spanish, as is the only advanced-level free podcast I've found on iTunes, Notes in Spanish. I'd love a news-oriented, NPR-type podcast that features native speakers at normal speed and vocabulary, rather than something oriented for language learners. If anyone out there has recommendations, please pass them on!

Hi. This is Kevin. This is a neat method. Spanish is a tough language for me. I am a regular visitor of spanish flashcards . This was a helpful website.
