Listen using a mobile app
Most people choose to listen to podcasts through a “podcatcher” app on their tablet or mobile phone. Such apps are usually free. They ensure that you will receive each new episode as soon as it is published, and allow you to listen while you are not online.
If you use any other podcast application, you should still be able to listen by searching for “FT” within the application. For details for how to do this in a particular app, please refer to its documentation.
