But I am struggling with newer and non-BBC podcasts. Many seem to be geared to listening via streaming, not to be downloaded.

An example is 'We didn't start the fire' ...

which was reviewed in last Wednesday's Metro. At the foot of the page, it offers you the choice:

Listen on Spotify
Listen on Apple Podcasts

I guess these will just open up the application if you have it, and then stream the podcast via the application. Like many other software things now, it's probably geared to smartphone users - I don't have a smartphone. I have, though, just bought an HP all-in-one desktop PC with Windows 10 home. This is going to replace my 12 year old desktop Mac.

So can I download podcasts like 'We didn't start the fire' and listen later on my new Windows 10 PC, or do I have to stream them on Spotify or similar?
I use Podbean simply because its what I use on my Android. If at my PC I use it via Google Chrome from a webpage. I only use Chrome as it will remember my login and all the podcasts I follow will be there. Quick search shows its on there.
