Recommended podcast platforms

We are excited about the increasing number of podcast platforms offering The World and Everything in It. They’re increasing faster than we’ve been able to keep up with, particularly when a platform encounters a technical glitch of some kind.

That’s why we’re posting here a list of recommended podcast platforms we know and have vetted. We want to make sure you have access to the program first thing in the morning. (If you’re wondering: We typically post the program at 3:15 a.m. Eastern Time.)

Most likely, you already listen on one of the platforms listed below. That’s great. But if a program ever fails to show up , please check one of the other platforms (we recommend SoundCloud, where we post the program directly) or click on and scroll down to the WORLD Radio section. If you don’t see the program, feel free to notify us at [email protected].

If the program is available on another platform and/or appears at, then you know it’s probably a glitch unique to the platform you’re using. Give it a day or two, and then notify us if it persists.

If you listen on a platform other than those listed below, please report technical issues directly to that platform. These are the platforms we support:

Amazon Echo (via Alexa skill)
Google Play
Pocket Casts

Please know that we work hard to ensure the program is available on time and without interruption. It’s just one of the ways we’re seeking to earn your trust, every day!

WORLD Radio transcripts are created on a rush deadline. This text may not be in its final form and may be updated or revised in the future. Accuracy and availability may vary. The authoritative record of WORLD Radio programming is the audio record.

    I am a World subscriber who’s eyes are not doing great, so I am listening to your podcasts more than reading the magazine. I know you have The World and Everything, World Watch, Listening In, and Legal Docket. Are there others? And are some free, some included with print subscription, and some needing separate subscription? Are they all available in the major podcast sites? I was hoping to find this information in the magazine, but didn’t see it.

      I hope that you have had your questions answered by now. The podcast list includes The World and Everything in It, Listening In, Legal Docket, Effective Compassion, and The Olasky Interview. They are all free and should be available on all major podcast sites. World Watch is a daily video that does require a separate subscription. The top story for each episode, however, is currently available for free on YouTube, if you wish to get a taste of it. Just search World Watch News.

    I am using PodBean and have had no problems. Thanks for The World and Everything in it – it is one thing we can look forward to every day!
