How To Listen To A Podcast


Hey, I’m Tim Watkin and I run the podcast
unit here at RNZ. But we’re aware that for many of you podcasts
remain a bit of a mystery so I’m here to help. Because there’s a whole world of story telling
out there for you, if you just give it a go. RNZ makes podcasts about history, politics,
fashion, sport, sex, families and lots more. A podcast is just a bit of audio that you
can listen to anywhere at any time. You don’t have to wait for it to come on the
radio you just turn on your phone or your computer. If you’re using your computer go to the RNZ
website, that’s rnz.co.nz Right at the top you’ll see the words Podcasts & Series. Click on that and you’ll get a whole page
of podcasts to choose from, then just click on the picture of the podcast you want to
listen to. Once you’re on that page click on the red
triangle and away you go, you’re listening to a podcast. But for most people the joy of listening to
a podcast is being able to put your earbuds in your ears and listen on your phone wherever
you go. For that you need an app, and you’ve got plenty
of choices. RNZ has its own app, so just go to rnz.co.nz/listen/app
once you’ve go the RNZ app you can find ‘podcasts’ listed under Programmes. If you have an iPhone, you can use the wee
purple widget that’s already on your phone, it comes with it. This one here. Open it up, tap search, type in RNZ and all
of our podcasts will be there for you to choose from. If you see a podcast you like hit subscribe
and every episode will come straight to your phone. Boom! Just like that. You can listen to all of your podcasts wherever,
whenever you want. If you’ve got an android phone though, you’ll
need an app that plays podcasts. But don’t panic, they’re free, and there’s
heaps of them out there to choose from. There’s Radio Public, Spotify, Stitcher, and
heaps more. Just go to the Google Play widget on your
phone and search for a podcast app. Again, search RNZ and you’ll see all our podcasts. Like The 9th Floor, a series of frank interviews
with New Zealand’s former Prime Ministers. It really is that easy. Get an app, tap subscribe, and start listening
to podcasts from RNZ wherever, and wherever suits you. We really hope you enjoy it.
