Podcast audiences have nearly doubled in the last three years. While I would love to tell you why I think this is, we will have to save that for another day. Rather, today I am here to help you make sure you are not missing out on the growing trend that everyone around you is enjoying. One of the reasons I love podcasts, is just how easy it is to get a nearly endless supply of amazing content that are entertaining, engaging, and informative.
As part of the #TryPod campaign (a campaign to continue to see podcasts grow and flourish) podcasters are asking people to tell their friends about their favorite podcasts and show them just how easy it is to find and listen to podcasts. To help make that even easier this post is focused on how to listen to podcasts on iOS, which means all you have to do is share this post and tell people all your listening pleasures.
Finding podcasts on iOS is as simple as looking for your favorite apps and it all starts by simply launching the Podcast app. Once the app is open you can search under “Top Charts” to look for the best and most popular podcasts about a wide variety of topics or you can “Search” for specific podcasts by name.
Subscribe and Listen
After you find your podcast click the “SUBSCRIBE” button to download the podcast into your “My Podcast” feed. Whenever new episodes are released they will be automatically downloaded into this feed, which means you wont have to spend time searching for new episodes and ensures you wont miss an episode of your favorite podcasts. Scroll through the feed, click an episode you want to listen to and you are good to go.
Listen on the Go
The main reason I got into listening and enjoying podcasts is because of how easy they are to listen to, especially while on the go. I often listen to podcasts while at work, during a commute, working out, or on long days of travel on planes and in airports. So next time you find yourself in the middle of a mundane task give listening to a podcast a try as a way to be both entertained and informed by something new and join growing community that loves and values what podcasts have to offer.
