Listening to podcasts
What are podcasts?
We publish all our audio on soundcloud, and embed it on this page, where you can browse, play, and download it. We also make it available as a podcast, which can be listened to in a variety of ways. Older Solidarity audios are removed from this feed, and can only be found through SoundCloud.
When we upload our audio, it is added to our podcast/RSS feed. This, in turn, is read by various podcast aggregators and directories, various audio platforms - which function as platforms or like search engines, for podcasts. With podcast clients or players, applications which can do this ("podcatchers"), you can find and subscribe to our audio - as a "podcast" - through one of these platforms, or directly through our feed.
The application can then notify you when a new podcast is available, download podcasts, play those which are downloaded or stream them directly, organise your subscriptions, and more - quite useful.
Subscribing to "Solidarity & More"
If you have an application which supports podcasts, then search for ours: it is called "Solidarity & More", published by "Workers' Liberty". Or, you might open our podcast feed with the app. While you're at it, why not subscribe to Labour Days at the same time?
As well as dedicated podcast players and clients, many music apps like itunes and spotify can manage podcasts, and you can find "Solidarity & More" through them. There are many other good apps, whatever you use, it might be worth configuring it - if possible - to notify you when there are new podcasts available and download cast episodes automatically, over wifi. See below for specific app suggestions.
"Solidarity & More" is on most major podcast directories: itunes, spotify, stitcher, tunein, soundcloud, podplayer and podbean. If it is not on a directory you use, let us know, and we can try to submit it.
If you already use a podcast client, or software which can do podcasts, like iTunes, Spotify, or many music players, like Rhythmbox (on Linux), you may as well use that. If you search for "Solidarity & More" under podcasts in any of these, you should be able to subscribe. Otherwise, check out the suggestions below.
AntennaPod is probably the best podcast client: it has lots of features, is relatively straightforward, free, open source, and doesn't have adverts.
You should be able to see, stream, download, play and queue any episodes, "new" or "all" (which does exclude older Solidarity audios). It saves where you are in the episode, even if you listen to a different one and then come back to it. There are some settings it might be worth tweaking. In "Settings" in "Playback", if you turn on "Pause for Interruptions" it means you won't miss sections when another app makes a sound, for example if you are using hands free navigation.
If you like to download them to listen to when you are out and about, and you have an SD card, you should probably "Choose Data Folder" in "Storage" to be within that. Under "Network", if you turn on "Automatic Download", it automatically downloads a certain number of episodes when connected to wifi - not over mobile data - deleting those you have already listened to, keeping you up to date when you're on the go.
By default these come with apple podcasts. If you search for "Solidarity & More" you can subscribe, and you can download and play episodes.
Computers and music players
There are several different podcast clients for computers, for listening to podcasts on the computers, or for downloading episodes to load them onto music players. The best is music players which has this built in, although Thunderbird (mail client) has an RSS feed reader built in.
On Linux, Rhythmbox supports podcasts, as do probably most music players, if you have a different one installed, or Spotify. On Windows, iTunes and Spotify support podcasts and are popular, or you could try gPodder. On Macs, iTunes is automatically installed, and straightforward.
