The world is sifting through this booming new version of talk radio, identifying the good stuff, while the garbage is falling by the wayside. In other words, good podcasts are easier to find. Bad podcasts are being filtered into oblivion. 

Whether you're on the go, commuting to work, doing daily exercises or errands, having a podcast playing in the background or on your headphones is a great way to pass the time and stay informed and entertained. 

There's never been a better time to be curious about podcasts and I'm going to show you what you need to tune in if you have an iPhone or Android.

I've embraced podcasts while walking the dog in the early hours when there's seldom a soul in sight. 

If you don't know much about the podcast world, I've got you covered. 

A podcast is an audio platform similar to talk radio that is typically released in a series of episodes and can be received by subscribers automatically. 

It's all spoken word, and it is typically focused on a specific topic, such as crime, dating advice, or celebrity gossip. Once you subscribe to a specific podcast, you will be alerted when new episodes are released, and you can listen to them whenever you want. 

Many popular radio stations have even started publishing their radio shows on podcast platforms so that people can tune in whenever they want rather than having to listen to the radio at a specific time every day. However, most podcasts discuss original content and are not just repurposed radio shows. 

There's a variety of topics you can choose from and places you can go to listen to podcasts.

Plus, there is no extra cost (yet) for listening to a podcast whether you are a subscriber to the show or not. Most podcasts have sponsored ads throughout their episodes which helps them fund the production, so you don't have to sign up for any kind of subscriber plan to listen.

HOW TO RECORD THE SCREEN ON YOUR PHONE, TABLET OR COMPUTER

Your iPhone already has the Apple Podcasts app on it. When you find a podcast that you want to listen to, they typically have a subscribe button on its homepage so that you can subscribe quickly and easily.  

The button might say "Subscribe" or "Follow," or they simply might have a + sign for you to click. Most platforms will also typically have a "Browse" section where you can look around for different podcasts to listen to based on a name or topic.  

Here's an example of how to subscribe to a podcast on the Apple Podcasts app.
