We intentionally went with a download-only method rather than streaming. We found that people find more joy from their music when they own it and curate it, vs. being streamed whatever the algorithm serves up. We also wanted to empower you as the account owner to be able to have complete control over the content on your Wisephone.
Downloading an episode from Google Podcasts can be quite simple, please follow the steps below to successfully download your favorite episodes.

- Type your podcaster name into the search bar and hit enter/return
Click on the Podcast Title to open the entire collection
Now click on the circular "play" icon which will bring up the episode controls at the bottom of your browser
Click just to the left of the link underneath the title and time remaining to highlight the entire link including the characters that are not visible, then right-click on the highlighted link and select "Go to LINK..." (this should open another tab in your browser with lots of words and characters)
Now open the search dialog by using the shortcut ctrl+shift+f(Windows) or Command+F(Mac). Once opened, you will type the keyword "Enclosure" into the text box and hit enter to search. Scroll down to see each enclosure word that is highlighted and just above that you will see the Title of the episode.
In this example, you can see that "Are You Worried & Confused About Buying Your Child a Phone?" is highlighted.
