How to listen

Listen to Suffolk ‘n’ Cool: exactly how and where you want

You can listen to the show right here on the Suffolk ‘n’ Cool site. There’s a player in the side bar (right) along with a link to a pop-out player which opens in a new, small browser window so you can use to keep listening while you look around or get on with other ‘stuff’. The shownotes page for each edition has its own player too. Our players should work on all devices.

There are lots of great ways to get your weekly fix of Suffolk ‘n’ Cool, wherever you are.

On your computer and MP3 player

As well as the players on the site, there are a whole load of ‘podcatchers’ services (which will automatically download each new edition, as it is published ready for you to listen to whenever it suits.

iTunesBest known among these is iTunes (available free on Mac and PC).  You’ll need to register an iTunes account with Apple but that’s no great hardship. To subscribe with iTunes, go to the iTunes Store and search for ‘Suffolk’. That should find Suffolk ‘n’ Cool, down in the Podcasts section. Just click on the Subscribe Free button. You’ll just need to confirm your subscription, then you’re done. Of course, you can set up to sync your iPod, iPhone or iPad with iTunes – updated playlists with just the editions you’ve not listened to yet. Very cool.

If you already have iTunes installed this link should do the trick.

Other podcatchers include Juice and gPodder. Podcatcher Matrix has a useful but not very attractive system for comparing different podcatchers.

In my view, iTunes offers all the functionality you need in a user friendly interface, unless you are anti-Apple on principle and wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole 😉

On your smartphone

The future is, as they say, mobile. Smartphones are capable of directly downloading podcasts and there are a number of pretty smooth streaming services. Two which we recommend are:

    Really glad to have found your podcast, listened to two episodes so far and love the show! I was tiring of Radio 6 musics repeating of tracks and craving some international music!

    Hey Rebecca
    That’s really good to hear. 6 Music does a good job – in parts, but if you want international, I think you’ve come to the right place. It’s really good to have you along.
