What are podcasts?
Podcasts are a lot like radio talk shows. You can listen to them on-the-go, whilst out shopping, on the bus, in the car or even cleaning the house. They have become a popular tool for learning and personal growth, and because you can pause them, you can listen to them whenever you like.
The simplest way to listen to a podcast is by visiting websites like audible.co.uk. If you have an iPhone you can use the Apple Store app that comes with your phone, simply search your apps for ‘Podcasts’. If you have an Android phone you can search in the Google Play store for ‘Google Podcasts’.
