About CIPD podcasts

A podcast is like a radio show that you can listen to any time. Our podcasts can be streamed online or downloaded to listen to later on your computer, MP3 player or phone.

We publish a new CIPD podcast each month focusing on a workplace or people management topic and including in-depth interviews and discussions with HR professionals and leading thinkers and academics. These podcasts are free for everyone.

If you have any thoughts on our podcasts or if you have an idea for a topic that you’d like us to cover, please use the hashtag #cipdpodcasts.

How to subscribe to the CIPD podcast series

You can listen to one podcast at a time or you can subscribe to the whole series so that each episode is automatically downloaded to your computer as soon as it’s published.

To subscribe via iTunes you need to search for ‘CIPD’ on the iTunes store to find the CIPD podcast series and then click the ‘subscribe’ button. If you’re still having trouble, there’s more help on Apple’s iTunes tips page.

If you don’t have iTunes installed yet, you can download it free from the iTunes website.

How to download a podcast

You can download an episode to your computer or mobile device by clicking the small ‘download’ icon under the SoundCloud logo on the podcast panel. 

You don’t need any special software to listen to an episode; the file will download as an MP3 file and you’ll be able to open it and play it with your default media player.

CIPD Podcasts on SoundCloud

CIPD podcasts are played via the online audio sharing platform SoundCloud and you can also listen to them directly on the SoundCloud website. You can also sign up for a free account so that you can share, ‘favourite’, or comment on the episodes.
