Listening to Spotify podcasts is completely free, but if you want to give Spotify Premium to a loved one so that they can enjoy the platform without ads, you can do so easily with Ding, in just a couple of clicks.
A podcast is a digital audio file that you can download or listen to via the internet, whenever you like. You can listen from any device you like, all you need to do is download a podcast platform, and you're all set.
You can find podcasts about science, history, art, comedy, or any theme you like. Generally, you will find a series of podcasts created by the same host, but it is not uncommon to find single episode podcasts.
