What’s a podcast?
A podcast is like a radio series that you can listen to on your phone, tablet or computer. There are video podcasts too, but Hanging Out with Nolan Hong is just audio.
How can I listen to a podcast?
The easiest way is to install a “podcatcher” app on your smartphone. A podcatcher is just an app that gives you access to different podcasts. iTunes is probably the most popular podcatcher for iPhone. For Android, try BeyondPod, Stitcher or SoundCloud.
Once you have your podcatcher installed, open the app, search for Hanging Out with Nolan Hong, and subscribe. This page does a walkthrough with pictures.
Now when you open the app, you’ll see if any new episodes are available, and you can stream or download from there.
What if I don’t have a smartphone?
Why should I bother with all this?
Podcasts are AWESOME. They’re great for a long commute or for doing chores. You can still get stuff done while you’re being entertained. Do a search in your podcatcher and you’ll probably find a bunch of podcasts on whatever you’re interested in. Start with Hanging Out and you’ll be hooked 😁
