How do I listen to a podcast

Unread post by Heisenberg » September 8th, 2015, 12:20 am

How do I download a podcast and put in on something that I can listen to in my car?

Small words please....

I have an iphone 5s if that helps

I was using iTunes to subscribe to podcasts and then sync the podcasts to my iPod (so they got loaded/updated each time I plugged the iPod into my laptop). Maybe you can use the iPhone the same way.

Otherwise you should be able to subscribe to the podcast on your iPhone, hopefully there is an option in the music player to keep podcasts for later listening (out of mobile phone range).

Like this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201859

Get a little FM transmitter that plugs into your phone and pretends to be you own radio station.

Yep easy as. On your Iphone there'll be an app, one of the factory inbuilt ones simply called Podcast.
You can search for podcasts or browse through the featured shows.
Once you find a Podcast you like you can either listen to it right then and there. Or you can select to download it to listen to it in the furture.

We have a walkman that has around thgree days of music on it. We listen to it by plugging it into the USB port on our stereo in the car. The files have simply been copied from records, tapes and CDs. No smart mobile phones, ipads etc. Just a home PC and a laptop.

How can I get some of this podcast music onto it as well?

You should be able to download them as Mp4s on the laptop. Then put them on your walkman like your other music. I know you can listen to them via Itunes but not sure if you can export them to a media device other than a apple product.
But I quick google round the place, you should be able to find somewhere to download them.
