Dear Ancestry Insider,
I love Crista Cowan and used to listen to her via podcast when I’d walk in the morning. Then all of a sudden I couldn’t find her in my strings any more. What happened? Do you know? Is there a way to get her YouTube videos back into my podcast list on my phone? So sad….
I asked Ancestry.com about this. Ancestry says Crista’s podcasts are only on YouTube now. YouTube used to allow automatic cross-posting to iTunes, but they had a fight and that is no longer possible. You could watch them using the YouTube iPhone app, but if you do that out walking, it will use up a considerable amount of data. If you pay for a YouTube Red subscription, some videos can be downloaded for viewing offline. However, not all videos can be downloaded and I don’t know if Ancestry allows theirs to be. In any case, using YouTube will not be as straightforward as iTunes podcasts.
There are other genealogy related podcasts to consider. Some iTunes general interest genealogy podcasts that I know about are:
