A New Kind of Catholic Podcast
My podcasts are different! How so?
Instead of just chatting to the microphone or interviewing people I provide researched content and drama. My history podcast Trimphs and Tragedies is a 23 part series covering the whole range of church history and in Characters of the Reformation I read an abridged version of Hilaire Belloc’s book taking a Bellocian voice. In Conversations With Joseph Pearce I get together with Joseph to discuss a range of topics regarding Catholic culture. My Gargoyle Code and True Fairytales are dramatic readings…and I’m working on a podcast serialized novel called Renegade Priest…so these podcasts are different from the usual fare!
How Can You Tune In?
Many of my podcasts are available free of charge through BreadBox media and most other podcast outlets, but if you are a Donor Subscriber you can also listen here though the blog as part of your subscription. Scroll down a few paragraphs to learn how to listen if you are a Donor Subscriber.
Sometimes the free podcasts are abridged versions of the full podcast here. Other free podcasts are posted after they are first available here for Donor Subscribers. If you want to listen without being a Donor Subscriber go to BreadBox Media, iTunes, Podbean, Stitcher or other free podcast outlets. The best way to listen to the podcasts at BreadBox on your cell phone is to download their app.
If you are a Donor Subscriber here is how to listen to podcasts…
All my podcasts are archived here and all are available if you are a Donor Subscriber. New podcasts are posted here first for Donor Subscribers then later at the free outlets. There are also other podcast channels here which are exclusively for Donor Subscribers and none of them carry sponsorship advertising.
Go here to learn how to become a Donor Subscriber
To take advantage of podcast listening as a Donor Subscriber you need to listen and download through the website and not through the other outlets.
When listening to a podcast here you can either stream the audio or download. Streaming is fine if you want to listen all the way through, but if you want to stop and listen to more later and would like to save the podcasts to your gadget or move them to another device you need to download the file.
If you would like to download from this website, after you click the “Play” arrow the audio will start to play. You will then see to the right of the audio timeline three vertical dots. If you click there you will get a choice to Download the file. Once you have downloaded you can save the file, move it to different gadgets and listen as you see fit. On PCs using Windows, clicking “Download” also just starts the audio. Once it’s going, right-click on the audio timeline and hit “Save audio as,” it will then download to your device.
Listening on your Smart Phone
You won’t be able to listen to these website based podcasts using the podcast app on your phone because those apps only provide the podcasts that are loaded with sponsorship ads.
But it’s easy to listen using your smart phone. Just use the internet browser on your phone–e.g. Safari or Chrome– to find my website-blog. Sign in using your username and password. Then choose the “Podcast” page by touching “Go to” on the homepage. Then bookmark the podcast page. When you want to listen, just open Safari and go to the bookmark and listen to any of the podcasts.
