What are Podcasts?

Podcasts are open access digital audio files that are available to download and access at any time. They can be downloaded onto a computer, tablet or mobile device, and are typically available as a series, with new episodes automatically downloading once a user has subscribed.


How can I access Podcasts?

Our Podcasts are open access and available online, meaning they are accessible to everyone. If you have a smartphone or tablet, you can access the latest episode through a dedicated Podcast App. The Podcasts can be found on our website, Apple Podcasts, Acast, Blubrry, Soundcloud, TuneIn and via RSS. To listen you will need a set of headphones or speakers.

We will also be sharing the latest Podcasts news and episodes through our webpage, bulletins and social media accounts.


Why were Podcasts developed?

The idea for creating the new Podcast resource was formulated following discussions at our Link Officers’ Annual Meeting. Our Partners expressed that one of the biggest barriers to professional development was time. They requested that we develop innovative and convenient ways of accessing the latest research and information. Podcasts were highlighted as a learning platform that would provide accessible and convenient information for users.
