Podcasts are the new radio. Yes, it’s easy to get in your car and turn the volume up, but podcasts offer so much more in the way of meaningful content. Plus, it’s easier to listen in from anywhere.
If you’ve never listened to a podcast, you’re not alone. You may think you don’t have time. As somebody who has listened to several hours of podcasts a day for years, I can tell you that it’s something you don’t know you’re missing until you experience it. I started out by finding Hardcore History by Dan Carlin and my love for podcasts blossomed from there.
I listen in my car, while working on articles, watching film, doing household chores, and when I go to sleep. I’m addicted to podcasts. Football, history, literature, video game reviews, politics, etc. etc.. it’s where I find the best content for my interests. But again, you may have never listened to one and you may not even know how to start. Let’s help you out with that.
First, you’ll need to pick an application. The most common is Apple Podcasts.
If you have an iPhone, Apple Podcasts is built in to your phone. If you’re on a computer, it’s an easy install (download here). It doesn’t offer the same robust features as other applications, but it’s easy to use and it’s free. You can also subscribe to your favorite shows for automatic download, limiting the work on your end.
Finding Bleeding Green Nation on Apple Podcasts is as simple as typing it into the search bar. Once you select from the results, you’ll find the button to “Subscribe”. You’ll also notice all those five-star ratings, which will tell you that you’re about to subscribe to an elite podcast that has ranked as high as 30th on their “Sports & Recreation” charts. Congratulations for being smart.
If you’re on Android, Google Podcasts comes already installed on newer phones. If you don’t have the latest Android phone, it’s an easy install (click here).
The rest of the process is simple: Search “Bleeding Green Nation”, click on us, and you’ll get this screen. Click “Subscribe” and you’re in!
You might know Spotify as a music streaming service but it supports podcasts too. This is great if you still want to listen to music before and after your podcast of choice and don’t want to have to switch applications. Just like the others, the process is a couple of clicks and you’re on your way to enjoying BGN.
There’s a trick about the media player we use in every podcast article. You can use it to subscribe from whichever application you’re using.
Here’s how the media player displays on a regular article:
And here’s what to click to bring up BGN podcasts on the app of your choosing. Give it a whirl!
Regardless if you’re using free services like Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify or paid apps like Overcast or Pocket Casts, subscribing to BGN podcasts is easy. We promise to bring you the best analysis of the Eagles in the business, so give podcasts a try if you haven’t already. FLY EAGLES FLY!
