It’s no secret that podcasts are the hot new medium to break in to. From noted celebrities to up-and-comers making a name in the space, podcasts are perfect for when you’re tired of your music playlist.

As an avid podcast listener, I find them extremely entertaining. It’s almost like listening to a friend’s conversation. Luckily for all the podcast lovers out there, Amazon recently announced its launch of podcasts on Amazon Music. The service is available in the U.S., UK, Germany and Japan, across all tiers of service at no additional cost.

According to BusinessWire, “customers will be able to stream top podcasts they already know and love, as well as new, original shows produced exclusively for Amazon Music and hosted by creators including DJ Khaled, Becky G, Will Smith, Dan Patrick and more.”

Amazon Music users can listen to popular podcasts like “Serial,” “RadioLab,” “WTF with Mark Maron,” “Why Won’t You Date Me?” and “Stuff You Should Know” (plus, all of the new podcasts in Amazon’s pipeline) without having to pay anything extra. If you’re new to podcasts, Amazon Music makes it super easy to find ones you’ll like. The service breaks all of the available series into categories like Strong Black Voices, Culture of Celebrity and The Podcast Essentials.

If you want to have access to podcasts on your go-to devices (like your Echos) and even be able to download episodes for offline listening, you can get started by taking advantage of Amazon Music Unlimited’s free trial. Available for free for your first 30 days, Prime members can join Amazon Music Unlimited for $7.99 per month for a monthly subscription or $79 per year for an annual subscription. Non-Prime customers pay $9.99 per month. As always, you can cancel your subscription at any time.
