How to listen to 70 million

Listening to a podcast

70 Million is a podcast with new episodes every Monday from August 27 - October 29, 2018. You can listen to here on our site or on your phone using a "podcatcher," another word for an app that collects a podcast's audio file. But we realize that not everyone knows how to listen to these audio files.  

If you’re already a podcast listener, excellent! We’re available in your favorite podcast app. (Your next mission, should you choose to accept, is to help someone else listen to this show. The below guide can help.)
