Can I find podcasts on BBC iPlayer Radio?

No, Podcasts are not available from the iPlayer Radio website at present. However, you can download a growing selection of BBC Radio programmes, or highlights from radio programmes, as podcasts. These are available to download individually from BBC Podcasts page, or you can subscribe to a podcast to get the latest episodes delivered automatically to your computer.

iOS and Android users can download Podcasts within the BBC iPlayer Radio app

You can see the current range of programmes and highlights available to download from BBC Podcasts website or look out for the green podcast buttons on radio programme pages and station websites. If using the iPlayer Radio app, simply select the Podcast button at the bottom of the screen where you can search or browse by station.

Most podcasts are available for seven days after the programme was broadcast, but once you have downloaded an episode you can keep it for as long as you like, and can also transfer it onto a range of portable devices, including the Apple iPod, Creative Zen, Microsoft Zune, Sony Walkman, among others.
