New to podcasts? No sweat. The easiest way to listen to a show is through a podcast app. Subscribing will automatically alert you to new episodes as they become available. Apple users typically use the Podcasts app that comes free with their phones. Android users often listen through Google Play, but both can also use Spotify. Other apps we recommend include Stitcher, Radio Public, and iHeartRadio. You can also listen right here on the site!
Your iPhone comes with a podcast app built in. Click on the purple icon called Apple Podcasts and you’re up and running! Once you launch the app on your iPhone or iPad, you can easily search the directory, find new shows, and subscribe. Spotify also makes a great podcast app for iOS.
Android users also have their own podcasting app built in—Google Podcasts—but there are many other options available. Pocket Casts, Spotify, and Castbox, just to name a few. Download any of them and start listening right away.
The simplest way to listen to podcasts is on a web browser like Chrome or Safari. You can do this from a computer or from the web browser on your phone. Find the player on the page, check that your device’s sound is switched on, and click “play” to listen to the podcast. You’ll see a player on every show page of our website. Just click and play!
