New to the world of podcasts?

Here, let us explain…

What is a podcast?

Podcasting is a method of publishing audio files to the internet so that people can access and listen to them. You can think of them as recorded radio shows.

The beauty of a podcast show is that, unlike radio shows, you can listen to them whenever and wherever you want! And, if you hear something good that you want to listen to again, you can easily rewind and replay. Podcasts give you complete control over what you listen to.


What does it mean to “subscribe” to a podcast?

Every podcast show has multiple episodes. The Life Made Simple Podcast releases a new episode every week, plus a short bonus “3-Minute Thursday” episode.

If you want access to each new episode when it’s published, you can subscribe to the podcast through one of the many podcast applications available for your computer and mobile device. And most apps are totally free! Subscribing to a podcast is similar to recording TV episodes on your DVR.

Keep in mind that when you subscribe to a podcast show, you may still need to update current shows in your podcast app (usually by pushing an “update” button or refresh button). Or you can just change your apps settings to update automatically. Just be sure to change the settings to update or download new shows through wifi only, just in case it affects your data usage.


Does it cost money to subscribe to the Life Made Simple Podcast?

Nope –  It’s absolutely free!
