Finnish programs, You Tubers, etc.
For upper beginner+ learners, I'd like to recommend the channel called Finnished. Its a channel for Finnish learners but ALL in Finnish (Puhekieli!). English and Finnish subs. Just a girl sitting in front of the camera talking about different topics. PERFECT to rip the audio from and listen to on the go! I can't recommend her channel enough!
Brilliant. Thanks for the recommendation. I wish I had come across that when I was studying Finnish the first time round - but I'm sure I will make good use of it when the time comes to study it again.
Here are some more youtubers that I've found. Not all of them are exactly the epitome of culture or thought provoking. But I tried to find a mix of all kinds of stuff. I watch lots of history and film reviews youtubers in Spanish and french. But as it turns out you'll find even quite a few history and film reviews youtubers in Finnish if you know that to look for.

Ajankohtainen kakonen is a news/debat program you'll find some content of the show on YT.
You can find videos with CC quite efficiently, just use a filter. For example, this is the request for Elämät:
It's important to use a word that unique for the targeted language. This made it easy for me to find German videos, hope it'll work for Finnish as well :)
