If there’s a show, or series, you particularly like, then you’ll want to download it and listen as a podcast.
If you’ve never listened to a podcast before – don’t panic. Here’s a short video from NPR’s Ira Glass explaining how it’s done…
Obviously, when Ira says, “search for Serial…” you can simply search for “Litopia After Dark“, “Burning Books“, or any other show that Litopia produces.
Subscribing to a podcast gives you flexible listening. With your choice of shows, available for listening to suit your schedule.
Also, you’ll never miss a new episode.
There are so many great podcasts out there for you to discover. Not just Litopia’s shows, but thousands of others, across virtually every area of interest.
Here are some video guides to get you started.
The iPod is the world’s most popular podcast player. These instructions also apply to your iPhone or iPad, too.
All these devices come with Apple’s free software for podcasts, called… Podcasts!
Here’s a short video showing you what to do.
Before we look at other devices, we should say that Apple’s free Podcast app is far from the only way to listen on your iPod, iPad or iPhone, Mac or Apple Watch. In particular, there’s a really good independently-produced app called Downcast… many people think is better (and easier to use) than Apple’s official app:
You’ll hear podcast people talk about “the feed”.
This isn’t because they’re hungry all the time (although some are).
Every show has its own RSS Feed – basically, just a link that tells your podcast app where to find the shows themselves. Mostly, you won’t have to bother with this… simply use the app to search for a show (e.g. “Litopia After Dark”) then just click to subscribe.
However, should you ever need the show’s RSS Feed itself, it’s right there, on every show page, just click on the RSS symbol:
And this is what the RSS symbol looks like, a bit bigger… you’ll see it all over the web:
