How to Find Podcasts on YouTube
Podcasts were once the remit of iTunes, almost exclusively, but over the years, podcast fans have been given more and more options when it comes to platforms.
Unlike Spotify, which made a conscious (and expensive) effort to bolster its podcast audience, YouTube has organically grown into the platform of choice for video podcasts.
Now, the video-sharing platform has its own podcast page to make this content easier to access and discover.
However, it’s not available everywhere just yet and appears to be rolling out gradually. In the US, at least, it’s life now. Here’s how you can access it.
How to access YouTube Podcasts on desktop
On your desktop computer, you can simply go to https://youtube.com/podcasts
If you’d prefer, you can find podcasts on the YouTube homepage by clicking on the explore tab on the left-hand side of your browser.
On the explore page, you’ll be presented with an array of topics such as music, news, and gaming along with podcasts. Click on the “Podcasts” button.
On the podcasts page, you’ll see popular shows, playlists, personalized recommendations, and genres to explore.

How to access YouTube Podcasts on mobile
The mobile app also has a podcast page and it’s accessed in much the same way.
- Open your YouTube app
- Swipe down on the homepage to reveal the top menu
- Tap Explore at the top left
- Tap Podcasts on the Explore page, you may need to swipe left to reveal it depending on your screen size
From here you’ll find all the podcast content you can possibly desire, and you’ll get the same array of recommendations and topics to explore, just like the desktop site.
