Different Ways to Listen to Podcasts
Podcasts are audio on demand and there are many ways to listen to them. There is no wrong way to listen to podcasts, you just need to find the one that suits you!
On Your Computer
Since you are visiting this website, let me start by saying that you can listen right here from this website. Click on the Podcast tab above then choose any episode. From there you’ll see a red play button, voilà, you’re listening to the podcast! Make sure your sound is turned up!
With a Smart Phone or Tablet
Most people find it more convenient to listen to podcasts from their smart phones or tablets so they can listen anywhere they go.
- Apple devices already come with a Podcast App by default (purple icon). Launch the App, search for Join Us in France and subscribe. Then you can download the episodes to listen to them off-line.
- Android phones can also play podcasts. Open the Chrome browser on your phone, search for Join Us in France and from the resulting search you’ll be able to listen and subscribe.
- To get more information on a given podcast episode, you’ll need to read the “Show Notes”. From a podcast App on a phone, tapping or swiping will generally display the show notes. The “show notes” or “episode notes” is where you’ll see the list of what we talked about in this particular episode and see the links to the places we recommend. To find the show notes for any given episode go to joinusinfrance.com/[episode number numeral], or do a search for the topic of the episode.
On Spotify, Amazon Music or Pandora
As podcasts have become more and more popular, music streaming services now list podcasts. Some even make good recommendations as to other podcasts you might enjoy!
- If you’re a Spotify user, search for Join Us in France, our last 100 episodes are there.
- If you’re a Pandora subscriber, you will also find Join Us in France on Pandora. Search for the name the way you do for any song.
With a Smart Speaker

Google Now Indexes Podcast Episodes
If you are looking for a podcast episode about a specific place in France (for example “Annecy”), you can search for Annecy on this website. And now you can also search for podcast episodes about Annecy on Google and that will show you Join Us in France episodes about Annecy as well as other podcasts that talk about Annecy.
