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 Apple Podcasts is achievable, but you will need a computer to do so. Please follow the steps below to successfully download your favorite episodes.
If you are using a Mac you will want to open Apple Podcasts
(*If you do not have a Mac, a web browser should work for these steps as well)
Type the podcast name into the search bar and hit return
• If you do not have a Mac with the Apple Podcasts app, you can simply go to Google and type in the podcast name + Apple Podcast - ie: Pumped Up Parenting Apple Podcast. Then click on the link, and it should take you to podcasts.apple.com/NAME. Now COPY the link in the URL field at the top of your browser and proceed to Step 4.
Click on the three dots in the bottom right corner of your podcast image and select Copy Link
- Now go to https://getrssfeed.com/ and paste the link into the search field. Then tap return/enter on your keyboard or simply click on the search icon next to the link field
Click on RSS feed under the description (*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.
*You can search for the episode you would like to download
Highlight the enclosure URL link from https to m4a. Then right-click on the link that is highlighted and select "Go to httpsLINK" (this should open another tab in your browser with the episode in the middle of a black screen)
Click on the three dots next to the volume control and then select Download
Once the episode has been downloaded successfully, you will want to locate the file to rename it accordingly (ie: "Pumped Up Parenting - Are You Worried & Confused About Buying Your Child a Phone?.mp4")
For troubleshooting support, our team can only assist with issues directly related to the Wisephone. We cannot guarantee the outcome of any process involving obtaining, downloading, converting, or curating audio files that fall outside of this scope.
