There are multiple ways to view the images that Martin discusses in the Podcast, so we’ve created this page to help you find the best way that suits your listening and viewing style.
Martin usually mentions the episode short-link in the audio, but all episodes can be reached by adding the episode number to mbp.ac. For example, the short-link for episode 547 is http://mbp.ac/547. This will take you to the blog post for the episode, and all images discussed are embedded. To view the images at the highest resolution, click on the image, and place your mouse over the image to stop it from auto-advancing if necessary.
To listen to the podcast and view images on an iPhone or iPad, if you aren’t already subscribed, go to http://mbp.ac/itns and subscribe to the Enhanced Podcast in iTunes.
Once subscribed, tap on the Enhance Podcast in the Podcasts app on your iOS device, then select the episode that want to listen to. If you don’t see the images when the audio starts, click on the small audio player at the bottom of the window, which is circled in red on the bottom left of the screenshot to the right.
When you click the audio player, the screen will change to the one of the right of this screenshot, and you should be able to see the images. Please note that there is a problem with the iOS Podcasts app at the moment, as described in the next paragraph.
Apple invented the Enhanced Podcast format, but unfortunately they have neglected to fix an issue with the iOS Podcasts app, so the chapter images being discussed are always one behind. The image for chapter one is displayed while Martin talks about the image in chapter two.
Because of this, the best way to view the images in our Enhanced Podcast is to use an iPhone and iPad app called Downcast. Downcast supports all kinds of podcasts, including video, so you can enjoy every type of episode we release.
If you are going to view on a computer, and you use iTunes, follow the instructions below.
We know that the Enhanced Podcast format isn’t perfect, so we’ve tried to offer as many options to listen and view the images as possible. It sometimes takes a little bit of adjustment in the way you consume our content, but we hope it’s worth it.
If none of the information on this page helps, please contact us and provide details of how you are trying to listen and view images, and we’ll try to help further.
