How to Listen to Our Podcast

How to Listen to Our Podcast

Getting our podcast is easy and free. No matter what internet device you are using, iPod, smartphone, PC, or another, you can get every episode of our show and listen on your own schedule.

Chris Lydon hosted the first podcast, and currently we’re the longest running podcast series in the world. We make every show available under a Creative Commons license, so store them, copy them, and pass them on. (And we’re serious about the first podcast. Look it up.)

iTunes on Mac and Windows

The easiest way to subscribe to the Open Source podcast is through iTunes, which comes preinstalled on every Mac, and is available for download on Windows.

Click this link to visit the Open Source page in iTunes. To subscribe to the podcast, simply click the “subscribe” button under the Open Source picture on the left side of your screen. While you’re at it, we’d love if you could leave us a rating or review by clicking on the “Ratings and Reviews” tab.

Open Source podcast in iTunes


Podcasts’ for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

On Apple’s mobile devices, there are several podcasting apps that you can use to easily subscribe to our podcast. Apple’s own ‘Podcasts’ app, available in the App Store, is free and works well, especially if you use iTunes on your computer. Once you have installed the ‘Podcasts’ app, use this link to go to the Open Source page.

Stitcher’ for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android

Stitcher is another free way to listen to the Open Source podcast  that works across Android and iOS. Click here to go to the Open Source page on Stitcher. Click “Get the app” or follow pop-up instructions to download and install Stitcher.

Other third-party ‘podcatchers’

If you use a different app to subscribe to podcasts, or we didn’t mention an app for the platform you use, you can manually copy and paste this link  http://radioopensource.org/feed/podcast/ into your podcatcher of choice.

Listen on our website

You can listen to each podcast on its respective show page by clicking the links to “play” or “download.”

Thanks for listening!

    How do I download particular, selected podcasts rather than subscribe?

  • bft

    Most of the blog entries have links to audio files within them, somewhere near the top.

  • The above information doesn’t really help me to download the mp3 of a specific show. I can listen sitting at my computer fine but I want to save the mp3 so I can listen as I move around through my day.

    Hello. I’m writing about downloading the interviews. First let me say I still painfully miss Chris on the air in Boston!

    I’m so glad he’s still doing shows of some sort. It looks like they’re only available to download though? It’s not at all obvious how to do that, from this site. I don’t use I-tunes, because it’s pretty “big brother” and not very “open source”, and takes control of things. Even when I try, the “advanced – subscribe to podcast” option is grayed out. Isn’t there a way to just download individual shows as compressed audio files??
