How Do I Listen to a Podcast?

What Is a Podcast?

We're so glad you asked. 😀 To put it simply, a podcast is a free audio program that you can subscribe to on your phone and listen to whenever, wherever you like.

A podcast is a series of episodes, centered around a particular host, theme or topic. You can subscribe to a podcast using an app on your phone. You can listen to each episode through headphones, through a Bluetooth speaker, or in your car.

What Makes a Podcast Different Than Radio?

First, podcasts are easier to listen to. If you find a show you like, you can download it and listen to it anywhere. You don't have to worry about using up your phone data if you've already downloaded a podcast and want to, say, take a walk around your neighborhood while you listen.

Podcast apps also make it easy to fast-forward, rewind or hit pause, so you don't have to worry about missing a second of any episode.

Podcasts are also more purposeful and granular than radio programming. There are podcasts out there about everything – every hobby, political commentary, business interests, true crime, spirituality – you name it, there's a podcast out about it.

When you subscribe to a podcast, every episode is downloaded right into your app, so you always know when a new episode is available, and you never miss a show.
