Open Podcasts

All iPhones come with an app called Podcasts pre-installed. Just look for this app icon on your phone, open it up, and you're ready to go.

Search for a Podcast

If you know the title of a podcast you want to listen to, click “Search” in the bottom right hand corner. When the box appears, type in the name of the podcast and you'll be presented with some results. Try searching for any of Gimlet's shows.

Browse the Catalogue

If you're not sure about what you want to listen to, check out the "Browse" section on the bottom menu bar. Apple Podcasts gives you a wide variety of suggestions of what you can listen to. See what podcasts are trending or take a look through a category that interests you. Apple regularly updates this section with the latest and greatest shows.
