If you’ve spent any amount of time here at Kasterborous, you know that we’re big fans and supporters of Big Finish and their different lines of Doctor Who full cast audio adventures. After all, how else are you going to enjoy brand new adventures with both Bakers, Davison, McCoy, and McGann and their companions?
Maybe you’ve mulled over the idea of getting in on the sweet audio adventure action, but you haven’t quite pulled the trigger on a single adventure or a subscription. We have some fantastic news for you, especially if you’re adapting to a post-PC world and doing 90+% of your computing from your mobile! Big Finish has released NINE complete audio adventures to their SoundCloud page and they’re available for streaming right now!
Let’s walk you through the process, shall we? (*Note: while I will be doing this from a iOS viewpoint, the steps are cross-platform and should net you the same result)
Þ From here, you’ll want to point your mobile browser to Soundcloud
Þ The link leads you here:
Þ From here, streaming is as easy as hitting the big orange “play” button.
Þ It will initially lead you to the first audio in the playlist, a Peter Davison adventure called Cuddlesome. However, if you want to see all of your options before diving in, you’ll want to hit the icon circled below.
Þ This takes you to the entire playlist and you can choose your audio from there.
As we said before, maybe you’re living in the mobile age as well and you don’t have time for a mobile browser. Browsers are rubbish. You like apps; apps are cool! Good news, I’ve got your step by step for that too!
Þ After installing, launch SoundCloud on your mobile device
Þ Hit the search icon:
Þ Type in big-finish and tap search
Þ You’ll then have a list of search results. It should be the second one.
Þ And Bob’s your uncle! You can choose your audio from the playlist.
