Some of the speakers have terrible Chinese accents.

Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.

For the stories that go along with the cartoons, I agree with you. It is like the XZTV channel. However, I thought those probably wouldn't be of interest to most people here, as they are not really beginner level, but at the same time people with a good basis would probably want to listen to something else.

However, the pronunciation of the letters, numbers, simple words (http://www.dhumra.com/family/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and the recorded stories without the cartoons is excellent. The recorded children's stories are easy to understand and read very slowly, so would be great for anyone with an intermediate level. You can find those on this part of the site: http://www.dhumra.com/music-stories/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I propose the site for people really starting at the very beginning with the alphabet and interested in learning basic words for the most part. Thought intermediate level students will enjoy the "Music Stories" section I think.
