How do I download a podcast episode on my computer?

If you would rather not subscribe, 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. You can find all of our podcasts on BBC iPlayer Radio on our Podcasts page.


  • 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 podcasts to your mobile or tablet, please have a look at the How do I download podcasts on the BBC iPlayer Radio app? FAQ.
