How do I download a podcast episode on my computer?

You can download individual episodes of a podcast to your computer. All episodes are MP3 audio files.

Here's how to download an individual podcast episode onto your computer:

  • Firstly, find the podcast episode you'd like to download. Check our How do I find podcasts? page if you need some advice on how to find a podcast. Remember, not all programmes will have a podcast.




  • Then, click on the Download option and choose which file quality you'd like to download: Higher Quality or Lower Quality.




The podcast episode will then start to download to the Downloads folder on your computer. You can move the podcast file to a different folder on your computer if you'd prefer. For advice on downloading on your mobile or tablet, please have a look at the How do I download on the BBC Sounds app? page.
