You can always go back to previous episodes in your podcast catcher, but they are all part of the vast archive of content found on: https://www.wordonfireshow.com
Podcasts are everywhere now. People and businesses are constantly launching and creating podcasts, listening to new podcasts, and talking about podcasts. But, you may be wondering, with all this talk of podcasts, “what even is a podcast?” Not to worry, we will break down the nuts and bolts of all that you need to know about podcasts below.
It is important to note that podcasts are generally free to listen to.
A podcast is a series of on-demand audio files (there are video ones as well) that often focus on a particular topic or theme. Podcasts can be accessed via a computer, tablet, or smart phone, Google Home, Apple HomePod and downloaded so that they can be listened to at any time. Listeners can be automatically updated of new episodes in a podcast by subscribing to their chosen podcast from within their podcast catcher.
The term podcast is actually a portmanteau of iPod and Broadcast. The “pod” of podcast is borrowed from Apple’s “iPod” digital media player, while the “cast” portion of podcast is taken from the radio term “broadcast.”
On your computer, you are able to listen to podcasts directly from the podcast’s website, on iTunes, on Spotify, or Google Play Music. There are also many other podcast listening websites and desktop apps for podcasts, so a Google search will provide several other options for you to listen to a podcast. Generally, a podcast website will direct you to all of the locations that you can listen to their podcast.
Smartphone / iPod / iPad / Tablet
Similarly to listening on your computer, you can listen to podcasts on the podcast’s website, iTunes, and Spotify. iPhones specifically have an Apple Podcasts app already pre-downloaded (or you can install it), so you are able to easily access the podcasts that you want. As for Android, there are many specific podcast apps available for download, including Sticher, Google Podcasts, Overcast, BeyondPod, and Grover Pro among many others.
Once you have your app or website, just search for the title of the Podcast, and subscribe. You can listen to past episodes, and get notified of new episodes.
There are lots of great Catholic Podcasts out there, this is just one of them.
