Teaching Auditory Comprehension of Main Idea

Hi. This question is for those of you who have learned English through classes and self-study. Can you recommend some listening exercises that helped you comprehend spoken American English? I would like to help someone practice listening to a conversation and retelling the main idea. Were there any strategies that helped you listen for the main idea when learning English? I'm also interested in your recommendations for podcasts or video clips for people learning English. Thank you!
