Podcasts

Podcasts are audio files that you can download to your phone, tablet or computer and listen to at any time.

You can listen directly in your web browser, but most people choose to listen to podcasts on the go – commuting, or in the gym or whatever.

To do so you’ll need a compatible app such as Apple Podcasts (comes included in the iPhone), iTunes, Podbean, Stitcher, Blubrry – see here for advice on podcast apps for Android users.

It’s best if you subscribe, then you can get each new episode delivered to your phone (or other device) as they are released.

Podcasts are now released at the end of each month (although reliability is currently variable due to workload). Occasional extra podcasts are released randomly to keep you on your toes.

If you like the podcast and would like it to continue, please support it by providing a lovely review on iTunes, by liking the content on this website, and by sharing the content via Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media.

If you’d like to contribute, please get in touch.

How to listen to the Trainer Tools podcast

You can listen to any cast by clicking on the link on this website, but then you’ll have to sit still for half-an-hour or so. Much better is to use a podcast app on your phone or tablet, or subscribe via iTunes, and listen on the go.

Some podcast apps need you to copy-paste the feed link into the app.

If so, here is the feed: http://trainertools.podbean.com/feed/
