A podcast is essentially a radio show that you can get on the internet, so you can listen any time you want.  You have two options: You can listen to a podcast through a website (this is called streaming). Or, you can download a podcast, which means you're saving it on your phone, or tablet, or computer, and you can listen to it anytime, even without an internet connection.

To stream: Go to a website, such as serialpodcast.org, and click the play button.

To download: Get it delivered to your phone or tablet each week using an app. 

  • For iPhones and iPads, use the Podcasts app. It comes installed on recent devices, or you can get it from the App Store. In the Podcasts app you search for Serial and then hit subscribe.
  • For Android phones and tablets, try Google Podcasts, RadioPublic, or Stitcher. Get those from the Google Play store. In Google Podcasts, search for Serial and click Subscribe. In RadioPublic, click Follow. In Stitcher, click the plus sign to add it to your Favorites List.
