Podcasts are a media form that is on the rise, and in terms of sports talk, they are on their way to replacing radio as a great way to get great content about your favorite teams. The ability to get a diverse range of content as well as getting it on the go and at your leisure is excellent.
You might not have listened to a podcast in your life. That’s okay, you aren’t the only one. Perhaps you don’t think you’ve got the time to listen, or simply aren’t sure something out there can hold your interest.
I’ve been consuming multiple hours of podcasts daily for quite a while, and I feel strongly that you just don’t know what you’re missing until you dive in. I listen to podcasts while working, in my car, mowing the lawn, and while doing work around my home.
Podcasts allow me to be doing two things at once. I can take care of whatever things I need to, while also getting valuable information and knowledge, or simply being entertained.
Here at Stampede Blue you’ve undoubtedly noticed a whole host of podcasts going up in the past month. There is the flagship podcast of the site, the Colts Cast hosted by Matt Danely, Afternoon Pancakes hosted by Jared Malott and Stephen Reed, The Quick Hitch with Hudge hosted by Josh Hudgens, and Stampede Radio hosted by me (Chris Blystone), Jim Campbell, and Chris Shepherd.
Whatever you are looking for in terms of Colts coverage, you should be able to find it through our podcast lineup (and if you can’t, you might be able to ask for it). Podcasts are a great means of communicating a lot of information with you, and we think you’ll really enjoy what we’ve got in store for this season.
However, for someone who hasn’t listened to a podcast before, you may not even have any idea where to begin in terms of listening. That’s what I want to help with.
Your first step? Pick an application you’ll use to listen.
If you have an iPhone, your go to is probably going to be Apple Podcasts.
If you have an iPhone, Apple Podcasts is built in to your phone. If you’re on a computer, it’s an easy install (download here). It doesn’t offer the same robust features as other applications, but it’s easy to use and it’s free. You can also subscribe to your favorite shows for automatic download, limiting the work on your end.
Once you find the Stampede Blue podcast and click it, you should see the option to “Subscribe” directly below the logo. You should definitely do it, because that will get you all the up to date Colts content you need on a near daily basis.
If you’re on Android, Google Podcasts comes already installed on newer phones. If you don’t have the latest Android phone, it’s an easy install (click here).
The rest of the process is simple: Search “Stampede Blue”, click on us, and you’ll get a screen with our logo. Click “Subscribe” and you’re in!
You might know Spotify as a music streaming service but it supports podcasts too. This is great if you still want to listen to music before and after your podcast of choice and don’t want to have to switch applications. Just like the others, the process is a couple of clicks and you’re on your way to enjoying the Stampede Blue podcasts.
There’s a trick about the media player we use in every podcast article. You can use it to subscribe from whichever application you’re using.
Here’s how the media player displays on a regular article:
All you have to do is click the subscribe button on the player and it will let you select your preferred app. Then you are in business!
Regardless of whether you’re using free services like Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify, or paid apps like Overcast or Pocket Casts, subscribing to the Stampede Blue podcast network is easy. Our commitment is to bring you the best analysis of Colts football around, so we hope you’ll jump on board and subscribe.
If you already are subscribed, do us a favor: head over to your chosen service and give us a rating and review. We really appreciate it!
