NPR has a free news broadcast in Spanish, Radio Ambulants : https://www.npr.org/podcasts/510315/radio-ambulante?t=1558519800917.

El Mundo also has podcasts, https://www.elmundo.es/podcasts.html.

Nómadas is a travel show Radio Nacional de España — Spain’s public radio station that takes you to a different corner of the world every week and brings you voices, sounds and stories from that destination, https://www.rtve.es/play/audios/nomadas/.

If you’re just getting started, News in Slow Spanish, is a good option. It has two versions: one using Spanish as it’s spoken in Spain and the other focusing on Latin American Spanish. The aptly-named podcast features discussions of current news stories in Spanish, but spoken slowly and clearly so it’s easy for non-native speakers to understand. https://www.newsinslowspanish.com/latino
