Why Download A Podcast?

Downloading podcasts means you can listen to the content that you want, when you want, wherever you want. If you are on the move, on a long drive or on a flight, you can listen to radio content without using your mobile data.

Simply download the podcast on your WiFi and listen back whenever you want to. You may use an iPad that doesn’t have mobile data. Downloading podcasts lets you playback your choice of content wherever you are.

The downloads will clear from your mobile device once you have played them back, or you can save them to listen again any time.
