Intro to Podcasts

WHAT is a podcast?

Basically, a podcast is an on-demand radio show - but not on the radio! You can listen on your computer, your tablet, your phone, in the car: anytime… anywhere!

The term "podcast" usually refers to the show (or series) itself, and podcasts are made up of "episodes" — although sometimes listeners will refer to a single episode as a podcast as well. Our podcast is The Divine Breadcrumb and we air two episodes a month. New episodes are available on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. We hope to release weekly episodes beginning in early 2019.

How to listen to a podcast episode

From the Podcast's website
The most straightforward method is to listen from the podcast's website through computer speakers or headphones. Each of our episodes is listed on our Podcast page and includes an embedded audio player. Just click the play button to begin the show!

With Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify or iHeartRadio
These podcast listening apps may already be installed on your computer, tablet or smartphone! Currently, The Divine Breadcrumb is available on the four platforms listed above, with more coming soon. You can find our show using the app search feature or we provide image links on our Podcast page for each episode for easy access.

If you don't have one of these apps on your device, the links are provided below

Another benefit of listening on a smartphone is you can listen in the car! If your car audio system supports bluetooth and your phone is already connected to allow hands-free calling — you are all set! If your car audio doesn't support bluetooth, look for an "aux in" or "line in" connector — it looks similar to a headphone jack. Connect your phone using a 3.5mm cable and you are ready to listen!
