What’s a Podcast? How do I listen?
At Join Us in France we produce and publish podcasts. A podcast is audio on demand.
- You can listen to podcasts from your smartphone, from your Amazon Echo or Dot, from Spotify, Google Play Store, iTunes, or from your computer.
Listening From a Smartphone or iPad
To listen to a podcast from a smartphone, you need to go through a podcast App.
If you use an Android phone, you can play podcasts from the Google Play Music, or choose another App such as CastBox:
Listening From Your Amazon Echo or Dot
To listen to Join Us in France from your Amazon device, first, you have to enable the podcast on your device by saying: “Alexa, enable Join Us in France”.
Then to play an episode, you say: “Alexa, play Join Us in France”
Once it’s playing, you can say: “Alexa tell Join Us in France to skip back 5 episodes” (you could also say “go back 5 episodes”, that’s the great thing about it, it’s not super particular, it gets used to how you talk!)
Or maybe you’ll want to say: “Alexa, tell Join Us in France to play the newest episode”
Or you could say: “Alexa, tell Join Us in France to play episode 187”
You can also skip around within the episode, if I said some mysterious French word you want to hear again, while it’s playing say: “Alexa, tell Join Us in France to rewind 5 seconds” (you could also say “go back 5 seconds”)
If you want to pause, say: “Alexa, stop”
And when you’re ready to listen again, say: “Alexa, resume”
It’s that simple!
