You might ask what is a podcast? It’s a digital audio file made available on the internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new instalments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.  So, it's like a radio sound that you choose to listen to when you want.
How do you listen? If you click on the links below you can find some podcasts by either Rosa of Nottinghamshire Federation and also some from Norfolk Federation
Both of these channels are on the “Podbean Podcast App” it is an easy-to-use podcast player, - just download the app for Free and start listening. (Search for Podbean in your App shop)
