How to download podcasts – a quick primer
iTunes user? Go to the iTunes store, and click on the ‘podcasts’ menu option on the left. This takes you to the podcasts home page, where you can browse by category, genre, and publisher. Select an episode to hear it, or click “get episode” to download.
Alternatively, try one of the many free podcast apps available on iOS and Android. Here are a few. Download the app to your phone, search for your favorite podcasts and subscribe. They’ll be ready for you to listen whenever you’ve got a moment – regardless of whether you’re online.
If you subscribe to a podcast, new episodes will download automatically to your computer or phone when they become available. They do eat up valuable hard drive space though, so you may want to delete old episodes that you’ve listened to.
