How to download Podcasts directly to your IOS device.

This is by far the best way to download and listen to podcasts, but if you listen to many podcasts, you can get into trouble with storage and phone plan costs if you don’t get the right settings or dot manage the episode carefully. For optimal settings and management, see “How to manage your iPhone/iPad settings if you are concerned about storage costs? (Forthcoming by Sept 17, 2016).

To show how to download episode or subscribe directly, I’ll illustrate this FAQ with a download of author Yuval Hariri in conversation with Russ Roberts in the Econtalk podcast series.

Note:      To expand thumbnail images below to viewable size, click on the image the in the “cross-hammer” in the top right corner. Click “Esc” to return to thumbnail size.

1.    TAP on the Podcast app on the front screen of your iPhone/iPad (left image) to open the Podcast app then

2.    TAP on the Search icon on far right of the toolbar at the bottom of the screen to open the search page.

3.    Type “Yuval Harari Econtalk” into the search bar in the top right of the opened search page (see right image)

SCROLL DOWN

4.    This should open the image on the left. Now TAP either the

a.    Podcast Episodes icon if you want play or download only the single “Sapiens” episode OR

b.   Podcasts icon if you want to subscribe to the “Econtalk” series to access past episodes and to have future episodes added to your Feed (but not your phone storage)

5.    If you tapped Podcast Episodes in 4 above, then TAP either

a.    The highlighted “Yuval Harari on Sapiens” TITLE if you don’t want to download the episode to your phone but want to listen to the whole episode in a wife zone or using your phone plan’s data allowance OR

b.    The download CLOUD icon to the right of the title if you want to download the episode to your phone to listen to it outside a wifi zone without using your data allowance.

SCROLL DOWN

6.    If you chose to download the episode, then wait for the episode to finish downloading. The cloud will be replaced by a circle whose outline thickens as it downloads, and when fully downloaded, by a PLAY icon. When you are ready to listen, TAP the PLAY icon.

SCROLL DOWN

7.    If at 4 above, you chose to subscribe to the Econtalk series, then
