Travel Podcasts

Podcasts! What are they and where to find them

Another way to learn about the UK and where to travel, when we can, is to listen to a podcast.

What's a podcast (we hear you ask)?

The dictionary definition is: A digital audio or video file or recording, usually part of a themed series, that can be downloaded from a website to a media player or computer

Where do I find podcasts?

If you're using your mobile phone or tablet, this first thing you'll need to do is download the Podcast app (if there isn't one already installed).

These can be found by searching for 'podcast' in:

- The Play Store for Android phones and devices or

- The App Store for iPhone and iPad*

*If you have an iTunes account you will find an array of podcasts available to listen to.

Tip: You'll need a set of headphones or earbuds.

If you're using a laptop or computer* you can search for podcasts, with or without having to download an app, by visiting:

*All Apple Mac devices will have access to iTunes so if you have an account you'll find a great selection to choose from.

Whether you choose to listen via your phone, tablet, smart device, laptop or computer you will soon find a favourite that you prefer to use.
