1. On your Computer
A simple way to listen to any podcast is to play it directly through that podcast’s website on your computer. You can find the “Mayo News Football Podcast” by simply typing that into Google. Each Podcast episode is available on two websites, the Mayo News and the Mayo GAA Blog.
Links are available on both sites and a simple SoundCloud box appears where clicking play will start the podcast. As long as you have speakers or headphones connected up to your computer, this is an easy method.
2. On your Smartphone
If you want to listen as you move around the house, or outside or on your walks or runs, then a smartphone with some nice headphones are the convenient option. First off, if you have a smartphone you have an ideal podcast listening platform right in your pocket.
The Mayo News Football Podcast is available on all good podcast apps including Spotify, Apple Podcasts and SoundCloud. Use the Apple Podcasts app if you’re on an iPhone or and iPod – it’s on there already, just search for the little purple icon. Otherwise, if you’re on Android or Windows, download a podcasting app. Then, subscribe to the Podcast there and away you go.
3. In the Car
We find that a huge number of Mayo News Football Podcast fans listen in their car on their commute to work or quite often on the way to Mayo games all over the country. But how do you listen to a podcast in the car?
First is via a Bluetooth connection. Most modern cars are set up to connect to your phone so that you can make hands-free calls. That same connection can also play audio from your phone. So, connect via Bluetooth as normal, and then simply press play on your podcast from your smartphone. The Podcast should play over your car’s speakers.
No Bluetooth? Try a cable. A very common car feature is an ‘aux’ or a ‘line in’ port. It looks just like a headphone jack and all you need is something like this 3.5mm-to-3.5mm cable to connect your phone to your car. This will enable you to play the podcast through your car’s sound system, using your phone as the audio input source.
4. On your Amazon Alexa or other Smart Speaker
Many Mayo football fans now have smart speakers at home, be it from Amazon (Alexa) Google or Sonos. The Mayo News Football Podcast is available by simply asking the device to play it on Spotify.
