Intermediate conversational Spanish
You get 5 conversations between two people. Before each person speaks you get the English translation, then you hear the Spanish at normal speed, Spanish at a slow speed and then Spanish again at 'normal' speed. At the end of the conversation, the whole thing is played through end to end in Spanish at 'normal' speed.
I've been struggling to find decent material to listen to and I think that this is different and reasonably good. In fact I bought the next CD in the series based on my experience with this one. I've given it 4 stars is because there is no PDF. So, if you don't quite catch a word you can't look it up. However, I've found that if you can have a go at repeating the word (especially with context), google translate will frequently find it for you :-)

Helpful for transitioning from beginner to interme
This is a great listening tool for someone who wants to transition from beginner to intermediate Spanish listener and speaker. The topics are also interesting and current which makes it easy to listen to.

Just what i was looking for after finishing pimsle
If you could sum up Conversational Spanish: Intermediate Collection One in three words, what would they be?
more pimsleur-like practice
What was one of the most memorable moments of Conversational Spanish: Intermediate Collection One?
It's exciting to be able to understand almost a complete conversation at normal speed after going through the step-by-step parts of the conversation. It's like a word-version of one of those magic-eye pictures where something previously unintelligible suddenly starts to make sense!
What about Eric Fallah’s performance did you like?
He's just the english narrator, but great voice
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
this is more of a book to revisit and go through again for review and additional practice
Any additional comments?
hopefully the next in the series is just as well done
