Knowledge for on-the-move: by setting up an RSS feed, you’ll always have access to the latest podcasts

So, how do I listen and subscribe to a podcast?

A podcast is a kind of digital radio show on the Internet (Internet radio), though it isn't broadcast live. This type of services is also known as audio-on-demand. You can download podcast episodes from the Internet and listen to them whenever you want. You have two options when it comes to listening:

  • You can simply listen to the web player on the provider’s home page in your browser and stream your favourite podcast as an Internet radio show. However, this isn't the ideal solution over the long term – mainly because it means that you’ll need to be online all the time.
  • It’s more practical to import your podcasts using an RSS feed in a podcast app like Podcast Addict and then listen to them from there. These apps are available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and for Macs and PCs. The benefits? Your podcast app will let you know everything a new episode is published. You can load a new podcast at home on your smartphone, tablet or MP3 player and then listen to it while you are out and about without needing an Internet connection. All this happens automatically as soon as a new episode appears. So, you don’t have to do anything once you have subscribed to the podcast you want.

    Almost all podcasts are available in iTunes, but you’ll also find lots of them on streaming portals like Deezer or Spotify.
