How I Find, Subscribe and Download Podcasts using Podcast Addict

Where to get Podcast Addict from

For Android users, you go to the Google Play Store by clicking on the image here and click install. With this app, I will note there are ads that pop up fairly often, I just hit the back button on my phone and they don’t bother me.  I understand this may bother others so you may need to look for a different podcast app, or buy the Podcast Addict – Donate app to remove the ads.
