What is a Podcast?
A podcast is a digital audio file you can stream or download to a computer or mobile device (smartphone or tablet). You can subscribe to podcasts so that the current episodes are downloaded automatically to your computer or mobile device. In essence they are like radio shows that you can listen to whenever you want.
Most podcasts are published by independent, small producers, and show topics are often targeted to a specific niche. For example, if you like antique phonographic music, there’s a podcast for that. If you like listening to a bunch of geeks from all over the world talk about science there's a podcast for that, this one. There are podcasts out there for every topic and interest imaginable.
You can listen to Blue Streak Science on your computer through iTunes, Google Play, or directly from the Blue Streak Science website by clicking on the built-in podcast player on each episode’s listing on the home page or its individual post. You can download the file and listen to it in your computer’s media player by clicking Download.
Because iOS devices have a native app they are the most popular devices of any kind for consuming podcasts. Just click here, click “view in iTunes” and subscribe! It's that easy! Or, when you're on the home page just click the “subscribe to iTunes” icon just above “Featured Podcasts”.
iOS device users can also go to iTunes and search for the free app called Podcast Source. Within Podcast Source you just type Blue Streak Science in the search box.
You can go to the Google Play Store for your weekly fix of Blue Streak or you can download the Stitcher app. When you have installed Stitcher or another podcatcher just search for Blue Streak Science in the directory and add us to your playlist.
If you are unable to locate Blue Streak Science in your app's directory you can manually copy and paste the feed URL into the subscribe URL feed. You can get our feed by clicking here, or by clicking the social icon located farthest right at the upper right side of every page on the website.
