What is a Podcast?

Welcome Future Listener! If you are reading this then you have probably been badgered by a friend or a family member to listen to this podcast but you aren’t exactly sure what a podcast is. The most simple analogy is that a podcast is an on demand radio show.  People listen to podcasts in all sorts of different ways and we try to make it as easy as possible. One way to listen is by visiting our website and clicking the play button in an Episode post, but most people now listen to podcasts in a catcher of some sort.

If you have an iPhone or iPad you have a Podcast app installed already.  Go ahead and click here to launch that and subscribe to our podcast. This will automatically download our shows when they are available so that you can listen to them at your convenience.  After you get your feet wet in the podcasting world you can graduate to a podcatcher with more features but Podcasts is great to start with.

If you have an Android device there isn’t a pre-installed podcast app but a good, simple one is Stitcher Radio, its kind of like Pandora for podcasts. You will be able to search for The Fandom Podcast soon and add it to your favorites.  Just make sure to hit the gear icon in the top corner to tell it to automatically download your favorites. Until then I recommend Podcast Addict which is a free podcatcher with ads. You just have to hit the + button and use the Search Engine to search for The Fandom Podcast and you will be able to subscribe to our episodes. Make sure to check the Automatic Download box in Settings so that you never miss an episode.
