Journeyman

For me the most important feature of any phone will be if I can listen to my podcasts, while most people consume music I consume podcasts.

On a given week, I listen to about 10 podcasts and some shows produce 10 hours worth of content.

When I got the Lumia, finding an avenue to be able to listen to podcast was my first task.

Here are  the steps taken from http://http//www.windowsphone.com/en-us/how-to/wp7/music/subscribe-to-podcasts
