Give Podcast Addict a try.
EDIT: By the way, Pocket Casts allows you to a significant amount of organization using playlists (or categories? - forget the name, haven't used recently).
Podcast Addict. Not the flashiest user interface but it's good where it counts. Highly configurable with actually useful options. Free to use without ridiculous limitations.
I use Podcast Addict, which allows you to download episodes. Also, you could install a file managing system on your device (what i use) and download the episodes from the website. Then just play the episodes through the file managing app.
This looks like Podcast addict If others want to change to it.
In my opinion it is one of the best podcast apps for android, it has an easy to use speed boost and time skip feature, and is probably the app used in the show, since it also tells you how long you have been listening to podcasts. you can also play any MP3 as a podcast though this app, this is useful for DCHH or anything you have recorded e.g. lectures.
I don't know of any easy way to do it quickly, but all the podcasts are available for mp3 download from podbay.
Alternatively, there are some very good apps for your phone such as podcast addict on android.
I switch between Audiobooks and Podcast. I tend to use Podcast Addict (Google Play) to listen to a wide array of Podcast because they have a very good search tool. I use Audible for the Audiobooks, but I will admit that I lean much more towards podcast.
Although you might want to stick to Google Play Music, I highly recommend Podcast Addict on Android. Clean and simple interface.
I paid for pocket casts way back when it was pretty much the best podcast app out there. I ditched pocket casts when the new version came out, I did not like the direction the app was going and the communication surrounding it was a mess.
Now, I use (and paid for) podcast addict. After a bumpy learning curve and dealing with a different UI, I have come to really like it. I have a playlist that plays in reverse chronological order but will be interrupted by "high priority" podcasts such as news updates. It lacks some features like a distortion-free normaliser and the gap skipping algorithm is rather enthusiastic, but overall, I am satisfied with my decision.
Feeling rather vindicated about my decision now.
> Pocket Casts
Podcast Addict is WAY better in my opinion
To answer the main question:
None, since I use mainly FOSS apps from F-Droid, GitHub, GitLab, XDA.
Podcast Addict is a great free podcast tool. It will allow you to download on wifi for later and automatically download certain podcasts as well as stream on demand.
I use it almost daily
Zuallererst hört man podcasts nicht in Spotify sondern in Podcast Addict.
Hier mal eine kleine Auswahl was ich so interessant finde und empfehle kann:
Alternativlos - mit Frank Rieger und Felix von Leitner (beide dem Chaos Computer Club nah, thematisch aber eher Weltpolitik und Gesellschaftlich relevante Themen. Die Folge über das Wendelstein Fusionskraftwerk Testgerät kann ich sehr empfehlen)
Chaosradio - Podcast des Chaos computer Clubs
Lucky & Fred - politischer podcast mit Friedrich Kippersbusch (ProBono TV), auch sehr witzig
Fest & Flauschig - Olli und Jani, muss man nicht mehr dazu sagen
Die physikalische Soiree - österreichischer Podcast zu Themenbereichen der Physik und angrenzenden Wissenschaften
Chaosradio Express - hat wenig mit obenstehendem zu tun nur den gleichen Ursprung, sehr differenziertes Themenfeld, aber immer sehr ausführlich (Länge: teilweise 4 Stunden)
Für verlinken bin ich zu faul.
Ganz wichtiger Nachtrag: Aufwachen-Podcast von Tilo Jung!
In my opinion it is one of the best podcast apps for android, it has an easy to use speed boost and time skip feature, it also tells you how long you have been listening to podcasts. you can also play any MP3 as a podcast though this app, this is useful for DCHH, BBC downloads or anything you have recorded e.g. lectures.
Podcast Addict has been my go to:
You add a virtual podcast / audio book by selecting a folder per subscription. It will add any files placed in that directory.
Podcast & Radio Addict
It's another podcast app, but is updated much more frequently and the dev is extremely quick on responding to questions or problems. It's not as pretty to look at as Pocket Casts is, but is definitely a lot more robust.
Podcast Addict is a free, fantastic Pocket Casts alternative- I didn't use Pocket Casts for a long time, but PA seems to match it feature for feature.
Podcast Addict is my one of choice. Multiple sorting orders and multiple playlists! You can also have a global and per podcast options for auto adding to playlists, downloading and clean up.
Out of every podcast app I have used, this is the only one that I didn't want to figure out a way to be violent towards. It's got a lot of shortcomings, the backups are kinda wonky, there's a very large amount of settings, a couple of the podcasts I follow just do not download automatically for reasons I cannot find, there are many overlapping gestures, but it has a nice simple widget, and generally works; I cannot say anything resembling that for other apps like pocketcast or jellycast or whatever they're called.
It ain't Overcast, but it also doesn't inspire you to invent a means to make apps suffer.
I use an app called Podcast Addict, it let's you control exactly how you want the interruption to be treated. It's what I used before Google Podcasts came out and now I like too much to switch.
Podcast Addict Link
Podcast Addict is consistently among the top Podcast app in similar questions in the past.
>Overall I think the whole podcast experience on android is really bad
You used Google Podcast and Castbox, they are not representative of the podcast experience on Android, they are representative of their apps use and functionality.
To give you some hope, the specific issues you identified I've never experienced in my years of using Android for Podcast consumption.
I use Podcast Addict daily, many times throughout the day.
>Today I stopped and got food on my way home and it was paused in my pocket in rest mode, got into the restaurant and it just started playing in my pocket. It's just so annoying.
Do you have lockscreen controls enabled? if so, sounds like you triggered the pause -> play from lockscreen. That is more of an option of how you chose to configure and secure your lockscreen and apps that have widgets on them, versus the actual app experience itself.
I like Podcast Addict. Been using it for a few years now. It's pretty versatile and you can download for offline play as well as resume where you left off on every episode you're in the midst of.
Podcast Addict. Spotify is trash for podcasts.
As for the audio quality. I'd say it's middle of the road. It could be better, but it could also be alot worse.
Only time I was actually annoyed by audio was a few weeks back when Van was sniffling through interviews. Iirc he addressed "coughing" and apologized for it, but for me the coughing wasn't ever really that distracting. For me it was the sniffling. I feel like it's gotten better recently (possibly utilizing a mute switch when the other host is talking).
I've used Podcast Addict on android in the past for Dude Soup and it always worked fine, episodes uploaded at the correct times etc.
Try Podcast Addict for Android, free version works fine.
You can easily add any soundcloud url to it (also itunes, youtube, etc) and it will auto download it when something new is added, so you can listen later offline.
Been using it for a long time and very happy with it, but there are plenty of other podcast apps.
Podcast Addict isn't bad and definitely ticks the free box. Though my goto on any platform is pocketcasts, although its a bit pricey.
At this point, I'd appreciate it if they would NOT include podcasts at all. I think they blew it miserably with the implementation in GPM, and I'd rather they just focus on getting one thing right. I relied on GPM for podcasts for a loooong time - 3-4 years maybe? almost since their debut - but I finally abandoned the platform for a dedicated podcast app (Podcast Addict, has a premium/ad-free version and works great.)
In terms of features, the best one is just being able to queue up a few different pods - seriously can't believe that we still can't add podcasts to a playlist in GPM. Additionally, though, I no longer have issues with episodes not showing up - NPR's hourly newscast is no longer MIA when I go to my podcasts; also, I can add my own podcasts that aren't listed in GPM; and for a kicker, PA lets you play streams/radio stations - and again, it just fucking works.
Anyhow, not to trash Google/GPM - I love them mightily - but I think they've shown a tendency for technical "sprawl", if you will: features that don't work great, don't get much support/maintenance, and oftentimes wind up getting abandoned. So I'd be stoked if they would just not even start down the path of podcasts, and just leave it to someone else who's willing to do it right, rather than tacking on some garbage to an otherwise-decent service/app.
Lol just my two cents, didn't plan on writing a screed.
I am investigating podcastaddict
seems less polished, more things to adjust so longer to get 'just right' but seems essentially to do what I want (ie be like old PocketCast!)
Podcast Addict - has ads (choice of either banner or interstitial) which can be blocked with Blokada (no root needed) or a fully deserved payment of ₹160.
The app is called Podcast Addict for Android and you can basically search for Wynonna Earp in the search bar to find these podcasts.
Yes to files in a directory. Yes to auto deleting on play completion.
In addition you can optionally
Set a play timer so it will shut off after 'x' minutes / hours
Send them to a recycle bin for 'x' days in case you want to restore
I don't know if you are being serious or not, but try downloading Podcast Addict (which is free), then tap the + button, tap search, then search for Sardonicast.
There's a great, fully-featured, popular, free (both libre & gratis) podcast app for Android called Podcast Addict. I use it, and I listen to plenty of podcasts which use things like art and chapters, so I guess it handles M4As just fine.
Same please. If you don't publish episodes to the rss feed, I can't load the podcast in my podcast app.
It's been my opinion for ages that Pocketcasts is massively overrated. I recommend Podcast Addict as a replacement. Many more features, better (IMO) user interface.
I use Podcast Addict on Android. I just had to search for the podcast hosted by Critical Role, and not Geek and Sundry, all within the app. :)
I use Podcast Addict on Android, it plays them in the order I assign them to the playlist. The app has it's faults but it's worked for me for a few years now.
Why don't you use Podcast Addict since it has everything in the free version. It's my podcast app of choice to over Pocketcasts which I already own.
Spotify actually has a podcast section (it's under Browse). But, other than that, if you're an Android user like me I like Podcast Addict. Or if you're iPhone the Podcasts app works pretty well. You just have to look up/subscribe to the podcasts you want.
Eu mi-am instalat Podcast Addict si am inceput sa caut tot felul de cuvinte cheie in aplicatie.
Pentru Romania nu gasesti foarte multe rezultate, dar pentru restul lumii gasesti absolut orice. Trusturile media mari (BBC, Reuters, PBS si altele) au de obicei canale dedicate analizelor economice sau temelor tehnice.
Don't listen to Newstalk anymore. Listen to podcasts now. If you want a great podcast, get the podcast addict app and subscribe to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History. His Common Sense podcast is pretty good too.
First off, that sucks about your ipod. I hope whoever stole it trips on a root and skins their knee in a really gross way.
That's weird about podbean. I don't use podbean, so I'm not sure. You should be able to use our RSS feed to subscribe, otherwise I use Podcast Addict on my phone. Let us know how you like the show!
Podcast Addict is an incredible app on Android for Podcasts (and even downloaded audio books).
I use Audible as well, and would never choose it over PA for podcasts.
Edit: On IOS I used Pocket Casts which seems to have a similar design philosophy to PA. Definitely not as good though.
Podcast addict. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Best podcast app on Android IMO: highly configurable, pretty stable, updated frequently, and supports Android auto.
I moved to Podcast Addict lots of others heading to Podcast Republic
Bloody shame... I loved Pocket Casts :(
You could try podcast addicst: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en_GB
It's been my default app for podcasts for a few years and not had any issues with it.
It also does have a timer, so if like me you find podcasts helpful to fall asleep to, you can set them to turn off after 15 minutes.
I just use podcast addict
It has all the podcasts that i want(cooptional, bombcast, beastcast, hardcore history) and automatically downloads them, removes silence, etc. Very cool app.
Try Podcast Addict. My 5:00 AM scheduled update auto downloaded the new episode of Red Mountain Express (along with all my other podcasts). I really like the app in general too. It's highly customizable and frequently updated.
O you have android. Go to the play store and download podcast addict. You can download them to your phone; if you really want to you can transfer them off you phone to your pc, but I would suggest just using your phone. If you want an help setting it up I'm happy to help.
Edit - here's a link to podcast addict on the play store
...und wer wie ich gerne in Bus und Bahn Podcasts übers Smartphone genießt, dem sei "Podcast & Radio Addict" ans Herz gelegt!
What are you using to download the podcast. Any standerd podcast app can automatically download eposode for you podcast addict is my personal favorite app
I am using a Galaxy S3 with cm13 right now and i use Podcast Addict for podcasts and it works really good despite my crappy <1GB RAM device.
If you iphone use this app - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stitcher-radio-for-podcasts/id288087905?mt=8
If you droid use this one - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
If you use Android, Podcast Addict is wonderful and allows you to subscribe to RSS feeds of any podcast you want then stream and download them offline, but already has most in its libraries. I've been using it for a while now and it has treated me well.
You can also import iTunes podcasts using it if they're only available on iTunes. These features should solve your problem if the websites of the podcasts you listen to have RSS feeds, as you can just plug them in and the app will automatically retrieve and catalog them for you.
Es gibt eine sehr praktische Android App namens "Podcast Addict".
Ist einfach ein Podcast Manager der dir automatisch die neusten Folgen deiner abonnierten Podcasts runterläd. Ich liebe diese App und benutze sie täglich! :)
Online não conheço, mas a aplicação android Podcast Addict apesar de não ser perfeita faz mais do que aquilo que procuras usando o rss feed de cada um. Nunca me falhou, mesmo com podcasts tugas.
I've been using Podcast Addict for months. The layout is decent, and there's lots of different ways to sort the podcasts (sort by download date, publication date, ect).
Podcast Addict has a manual priority process, or a more helpful (IMHO) automatic prioritizing process based on which episodes you actually listen to. Thus far it's been totally worth the purchase price, although I bought before the new subscription model so I dunno about that
Spotify is betting more heavily on PodCasts since they've noticed that users spend longer on the Spotify App when listening to podcasts. You can only listen to music for so long I guess. Spotify isn't the best App to listen to podcasts to. Filtering, sorting and playing could be done a lot better.
Personally I use Podcast Addict for Android. Not sure if there's an alternative on iPhone though. Sorry.
All things said however, yes, it seems like there will be "exclusive" podcasts offered because, why not? Podcasts have been a free for all for a long time and it doesn't surprise me they're clueing in that they could monetize good podcasts.
Same. Going on 8 years of daily use. The dev is very responsive. He's personally answered multiple bug reports and feature requests with follow-ups and detailed technical info. Can't recommend it enough.
with a quick search I found two apps, try them and do tell which one is better
Here's something small and simple. Going to try to contribute at least 1 profile to these each month, no matter how small.
It checks if any of your subscribed podcasts in Podcast Addict have any new episodes when you connect to wifi.
yeah but i don't consider student prices worth considering. Not because it's not a good deal. Student deals are often good deals but they're ultimately temporary. It's like when you get a cable deal it's nice and well but when 6 months are over and that prices comes back up suddenly the math that made it better than competitor may not work.
I know you were not suggesting it but I don't at all understand the desire to use Spotify as a podcast catcher because from the outside there's no way it gives anything but a terrible experience. Spotify is like the last place I'd go to organize and sort out my podcasts. :shrug: (For the record I'm settled quite well in PA
As for the rest.. ehh I mean I hear you and I'm not gonna say you're wrong but personally I don't see the value in that being worth the consistent monthly payments.
Please jump ship to podcast addict link android
I was a fan of Pocketcast but they are lacking A LOT of options. It is a good looking app but I prefer to have the number of episodes i listened to synced in the cloud (when i have to buy a new device etc) Podcast addict has it all
No, you can find the story as a separate podcast. Just use any podcast app you prefer, I'm using podcast addict but there are also iTunes or Stitcher for example. You can also listen here.
I listened to zombies, run too when I still had a gym membership (I suck at running but would listen on the crosstrainer). I prefer the zombie theme a bit more, just because I like apocalyptic stuff, but the spy/terrorism theme of the walk is working well with walking through the neighborhood in my case, lol.
Have you considered using a real podcast app, like Podcast Addict or Pocket Casts?
Podcast addict is a great program that automatically downloads all your favourite podcasts. You can easily find and subscribe the podcasts you want(or discover new ones) through the app.
I use a Samsung galaxy edge myself and would be happy to add my 2cents.
I personally use Podcast Addict. Not only did the name seem fitting, it's free and relatively straight forward to use and they have a cool algorithm to that will look at what you listen to and recommend other podcasts.
Às vezes você parece surpresa quando aparece um ep novo de podcast, então vou te recomendar o Podcast Addict, que é um agregador maravilhoso, o que me faz ter mais podcasts do que saco pra ouvir tudo :)
Ja sam koristio PodcastAddict
Slušao sam Nerdist, Europhoria, Hardcore History, Planet Money...
I guess you don't listen to multiple podcasts ?
It's cool to have a podcast app, at least you can make sure you're not missing anything.
I use this one.
Me bajé esta app para el celular y me bajo un montón de podcast de calidad tipo cosas de la BBC y similares para escuchar en el subte https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=es
Oh yeah I hear you... :) They're like a 3 hour freight train sometimes.
Possible tip: lots of podcast apps ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict ) and I think recent VLC versions have an option to speed up (or slow down) without affecting the voices too much (not like those 80's VCRs fast forward sounds). Most podcasts these days I listen at 1.5x speed, but Bitcoin Uncensored often needs to go down to 1.1x or this last episode even to 1x as I found it too interesting to miss words.
But you could try playing it at 0.8x or so and see if that makes it easier for you.
PA has the most options from any podcast app I've used. And the whole idea of a single guy making a better app than a team (IMO) resonated with me.
As far as user defined categories, it is available, although I don't use then.
Give it a shot, the free version has all the options of the donate version, except it has ads.
PS. Sorry, I don't know how to add links from app.
never tried any of those (GPlay Music doesn't even offer podcasts in my country), but if you are looking for a new podcast app, I'm really happy with Podcast Addict
Podcast Addict is another good one. It goes up to 5x, though I've no idea who could actually listen to that. It's also free. Podcast Addict
You can also find it on podcast addict
Also, with team make-up; Thatcher is better than Twitch, as his EMP is much easier to use and more effective than the Twitch cam.
I just had time to check, and yes Podcast addict has 139 episodes of it going back 6 years. I was just able to download episode 1 from here.
Here is a link to the app. Android only and you can DL straight to your phone or stream them.
There is also Stitcher, they have both Android and iPhone apps, but AFAIK you cannot DL, only stream.
Its the worst i hate that app did all the same things to me, get yourself a podcast player if your on android i use podcast addict https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
the subscribe to RMG using this link http://www.wmms.com/podcast/rmg.xml
my life is so much better after doing this, if you need help PM me
I use Podcast Addict. I can search for podcasts on here, or enter an RSS Feed. You can set it to automatically download episodes when they come out. Every few days I download a bunch of episodes of backlogged shows I like and then I put them in a play list, Podcast A, Podcast B, Podcast C, Podcast A...
I am not sure if it will play seamlessly between your Android and your PC because I haven't used it for that.
Linkme: Podcast Addict
Edit: Apparently I can't use the Linkme Bot correctly so Here it is.
Edit2: I did use it correctly but I'm impatient. Either works!
I use Podcast Addict: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
It supposedly has ads somewhere, but I've never seen one. The only thing purchasing the app does it remove the ad (to support the creator)
Obligatory Podcast Addict recommendation here. Pages of settings and ability to override them on each feed separately allows you to automate everything. May be a bit complicated if you're just getting into podcasts, but there's nothing better once you need to manage more than a few subscriptions.
If all you want us to resume from where you left off then you can use any podcast app. I use Podcast Addict. Or you can use a audio book app, I use Voice
Voice actually has a bookmark feature if you want to save multiple time codes
Mitä tarkoitatte podcast-alustalla? Jos esim. kuuntelen YLEn podcastit vaikka tällaisen kännykkäsovelluksen kautta, onko se alusta?
Newpipe can either stream or download YT audio only.
alternatively can use it to download to a folder, then use Podcast Addict to treat said folder as a 'virtual podcast'
Just download YouTube Vanced and you'll be an Android fan for life and never even consider going back to Apple. It's YouTube minus the ads (and can even skip sponsored segments in videos)
And if you're a podcast listener, Podcast Addict is unmatched.
use Newpipe to download youtube audio only as mp3s to a specific folder on phone
use Podcast Addict to treat said folder as a 'virtual podcast'.
Podcast Addict (Site | Android)
Tap the + button in the top right corner.
Tap the RSS button. Paste the URL in the 'RSS feed URL' box.
Tap the ADD button.
The RSS feed will be added as a podcast in your library. It make take a little while to initialise.
In general, spotify is a sub par experience in all areas for as a podcast app for both usuability, features and even spirit of the podcast medium (closed garden: exclusives, no rss feeds, no import/export etc).
recommend you use (free)
Podcast Addict (Android)
>Moving to apps, Spotify is my podcatcher of choice
well, theres your problem.
get a robust dedicated podcasting app instead with better functionality.
vastly better player, download and discovery features than Spotify "offers".
You could use Recast in a browser to generate a custom RSS feed that will 'release' a 'new' episode every 1-14 days (value of choosing) - one by one from the oldest in feed. or manually from show note link if required.
not helpful for your iOS request, but Android's Podcast Addict has this implemented as the 'download > archive mode' & 'automatic cleanup > keep at most (X)' features
I use Podcast Addict for this and all my other podcasts. Works pretty great.
Get a better app.
Android: Podcast Addict
wait for that sell-out to migrate exclusively to spotify in sept.
If they are podcasts try Podcast Addict and you can use headphone buttons to control either wired or Bluetooth even in car.
I use it all the time. Even in car long pressing the next button skips/fast forwards few seconds.
Podcast apps are better if your content is available in a podcast format.
You can subscribe to YouTube channels from this App Podcast Addict so it should work.
Play Store Link - Podcast Addict
Podcast Addict can acheive this locally - lets you add local device stored folders of mp3s as 'virtual podcasts'.
re: your 'cloud serivce' does that let you get direct .mp3 links? construct a private rss feed using something like Fourble?
Podcast Addict. é o único q aguenta o rojão se vc seguir um número mto grande de podcasts. é rápido e simples.. e tem uma boa plataforma de busca.
Podcast Addict has a Settings > Network menu, allowing you to set everything as wifi only.
Fully featured free version.
Android's Podcast Addict lets you create a 'search based' podcast
as noted you can get a rss feed.
another handy general tip if android:
the podcast addict app lets you add mp3s as 'virtual podcasts'
e.g. will treat a folder of mp3s as if they were a podcast show
'playlists' and press the 'tag' icon at top to jump to 'categories'
(or settings > manage lists > categories)
can assign specific show(s) to these tags and additional filter choices too, which will appear as 'playlists'
e.g. create a 'comedy' category that includes A, B, C shows only
e.g. create a 'story' category that includes D, E, F shows only
e.g. create a 'news' category that includes G, H, I shows only
when you go to the 'playlists' screen, these will appear in the 'CUSTOM' tab.
switch between them using the dropdown.
or you could put everything into one ;p
at this point you then have a extensive amount of ORDER BY options (which can also cascade)
e.g. order by <PODCAST NAME>, then order by <DURATION>
you can also even set specific podcast shows 'priority' numbers as well for their ordering
I see. Try to introduce him to podcasts, they are mostly free anyway and very easy to handle from a smartphone.
I am saying this because I have spent so many hours on the commute and wish I would have known them sooner. Podcasts make cleaning from a chore to a joy. I like them mostly for being interesting and funny, though there are a few serious ones.
So my recommendation:
for android Podcast Addict
for iphone Overcast, never used this one myself but heard a lot of good comments about it
Podcasts (just search the name in the app and load it from there):
HFS - Holy Fucking Science, made by the people who works on Youtube's channel SciShow. Well researched topics, but not dry at all and very funny. They use swear words as they see fit, thus not for kids. And rarely grown up topics.
Radiolab, a classic in the podcast world. Interesting stories from around the world, also often of scientific nature.
99% Invisible, about design of all things. If what drives you is curiosity, that's the podcast for you.
Serial, in season 1 the podcast dives into the story of a person who claims he has been wrongfully convicted. You will die wanting to know what they found out in the next episode. Listen to the episodes in order here.
MBMBAM: My Brother, My Brother and Me - three brothers answer stupid questions and give life advice to people on online forums. They are total goofs and basically make jokes of everyone. All their advices are fully sarcastic. Still the funniest podcast I know of, if you don't mind losing a few brain cells.
I have set up my podcast app such that it always keeps 10 episodes oldest episodes, and deletes them when they finish. And maybe you will like some of these too.
This question has been asked many times, if you search for it here, /r/Android, /r/fossdroid, it'd pop up. But here is what I use:
Eventually, I am going to self-host Cherry Music (Android App) or Ampache (Android App, called Power Ampache on F-Droid) or Airsonic (access with ultrasonic app) to replace Spotify possibly. And will host a Nextcloud and access with the android app.
(This is a copy & paste response, not everything might apply to you but in general it will contain useful info for a new player)
Take a look at the officlal WoWs website every few days to keep up with new events and missions. (EU, NA, SEA, RU)
You can find a lot of detailed info on the official WoWs Wiki.
If your account has not reached Service Record Level 3 yet, then you can still make use of a referal link by another player. Feel free to mention here that you want a invite link send by private message, and people are always willing to give you their link because both players profit from it. Then simply click on the link and login with the existing account. When you play your first Tier 6 battle, you get rewarded with a Tier 5 Premium Battleship "Texas", 80.000 Free XP and 3.000.000 silver credits, plus some signal flags. If your account is already at or over Service Record Level 3, then its too late for that. You can either create a new account, or just continue.
If you get a invite code by WG from somewhere (not the same as invite link from a player), then that code can only be used at the moment of account creation, not after. You can use it together with a invite link tho. Simply follow the link given by the other player, and in the create account form, add the invite code. Then you get both benefits (from the invite link, and from the code). Such codes often give you a week of premium time and a low-tier premium ship. (Note the difference to Bonus Codes, those can be used by existing accounts. Invite Codes are only for new accounts.)
When asking for such invite links and/or codes, please always note on which server-region you are playing on. This also is very helpful when you are looking for a clan or other server specific things. So please do mention it right away because it saves us all time when we dont have to ask. There is no default server, we are a very international community.
iChase has a series called "Captain's Academy" on his YouTube channel that teaches a lot of basics and game mechanics, such as the difference between AP and HE ammo and when to use what, how angling works and much more.
Other popular WoWs YouTubers/Streamers are (in no specific order) Notser, Flamu, NoZoupForYou, Arlios, Aerroon, Capt_Rye, The Mighty Jingles, iEarlGrey, The Sailing Robin and many more. Some of them stream on Twitch.tv too, you can usually find the links on their YouTube profiles.
For CV specific content: Femennenly and Farazelleth. They both have series dedicated to showing the basics of Aircraft Carrier gameplay and guides for the ships.
And there is the weekly Warships Podcast. I recommend adding that to your favorite podcast app or something (eg. Podcast Addict), the website is !#@%.
The Fitting Tool on WoWsFT gives you the option to see almost all detailed stats of a ship, see what consumables it has, mount different modules, equip captain skills and see what stats change (without having to actually do all that ingame).
A similar site is Proships.ru with plenty of information about ship stats. It does offer some small advantages over WoWsFT but to get most of it in english, you have to use this direct link to the list of ships. Personally i prefer WoWsFT but some people like Proships a lot.
Shipcomrade is a good site with news, and also where AprilWhiteMouse writes her detailed reviews of premium ships, as well as other articles. I highly recommend reading the reviews before buying any premium ship.
WoWs-Numbers and Warships.Today are popular statistics tracking sites where you can look up your own and other players progress. Warships.Today has been a bit unreliable recently, many people prefer WoWs-Numbers.
If you want to try out different ships/nations/classes, the Public Test server is a good choice for that. WG announces each new PT run on their website, so check there. You will need to make a seperate account for that and install the PT client in addition to the standard. Make sure to use the same email address in order to receive rewards for testing, the playername can be whatever you want. You usually start with a lot of ships unlocked on the PT, along with a bunch of doubloons and silver credits. Try out whatever you like. Most of the time the PT is focused on testing new features and you can get rewards on your main account for doing specific things on the PT. All of that is noted in the newsposts for that PT version. To create an account for the PT, follow the PT guide here. Keep in mind, when you click the "signup for the public test button" to not login with your current account, but create a new account for the PT (and use the same email address). And yes, the URL will seem like you are creating a account on the russian server, that is correct. There is only one PT server, not seperate servers for EU/NA/SEA. Everyone plays on the (russian) PT server.
If you want to stay away from PvP (Random Battles) for the start, that is fine. You can also play Coop battles which are of course much easier (and quicker) but also give you less XP and credits. The Operations are a great balance between them tho. Each week is another Operation in the rotation that you can join (either with a few friends in a division or alone) and play. Some Operations only allow certain Tiers of ships, or even nations. If you want to play a specific Operation that is not the "Operation of the week" you can, but you need atleast 4 players in a division to do so. You can earn great rewards for completing the Operations (captains, XP, premium account time, etc.). But you can only earn them once (so doing the same Operation with 5 stars over and over again will give you only the usual XP and silver credits, not more days of premium account). Also note that any missions and such that reward Premium Time to your account will activate that immediately, so it may be wise to time that for the weekend or whenever you will be able to make the most from that boost.
Aslain's Modpack Installer (WG forum post) combines a lot of popular mods for the game into one easy download and you can select which one's you actually want to install. There is also the "Modstation by MedvedevTD" which is basically the official WG Modpack, but its updated usually much slower than Aslain's. In addition, every mod(pack) that is constantly posted and updated on the official WG forums can be considered approved by WG so you dont have to be too worried about being warned/banned for using unwanted mods. But of course, in the end its your own responsibility what things you install in addition to the vanilla game.
And thank you for being really interested in the game and wanting to learn! Many experienced players feel that new players (especially since the game launched on Steam) just want to play and expect to get good in this game by themself, and they dont want to put in any extra effort such as watching videos, reading guides, asking for help and such. The result is potato players from Tier 1 all the way up to Tier 10 and they never learn the mechanics of the game and how they are supposed to play their shipclass.
If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to post in this subreddit. There is a weekly "FAQ Friday" thread where you can ask anything, especially smaller issues that may not "deserve" their own topic. Before submitting your own posts, please use the search function if something similar has already been posted recently, and of course take a look at the sidebar which has also helpful links and the rules of the subreddit.
Podcast Addict is the best imo. Also have an XL
If you are wondering what things like CA and AFT mean, you can find some explained here.
Take a look at the official WoWs website every few days to keep up with new events and missions.
If you are wondering what things like DD/AFT/CE mean, you can find some explained here and here.
If your account has not reached Service Record Level 3 yet, then you can still make use of a referal link by another player. Feel free to mention here that you want a invite link send by private message, and people are always willing to give you their link because both players profit from it. Then simply click on the link and login with the existing account. When you play your first Tier 6 battle, you get rewarded with a Tier 5 Premium Battleship "Texas", 80k FreeXP and 3mil silver credits, plus some signal flags. If your account is already at or over Service Record Level 3, then its too late for that. You can either create a new account, or just continue.
If you are looking for other people to play with, or just to chat, join the* subreddit's Discord server*.
iChase has "5 things you need to know" and a series called "Captain's Academy" on his YouTube channel which teaches a lot of basics and game mechanics, such as the difference between AP and HE ammo.
Other popular WoWs YouTubers/Streamers are (in no specific order): Notser, Flamu, Flambass, The Mighty Jingles, Capt_Rye, The Sailing Robin, Yuzral, Arlios, Aerroon, NoZoupForYou and many more. Some of them stream on Twitch.tv too, you can usually find the links on their YouTube profiles.
The Fitting Tool on WoWsFT gives you the option to see almost all detailed stats of a ship, see what consumables it has, mount different modules, equip captain skills and see what stats change (without having to actually do all that ingame). This way you can "simulate" a build with modules and skills.
WoWs-Numbers is a popular statistics tracking site where you can look up your own and other players progress.
"Maximizing XP for Dummies" and "Things about setting fires" are maybe worth reading.
If you want to try out different ships/nations/classes, the Public Test server is a good choice for that. WG announces each new PT on their website. You will need to make a seperate account for that and install the PT client in addition to the standard. Make sure to use the same email address in order to receive rewards for testing, the playername can be whatever you want. You usually start with a lot of ships unlocked on the PT, along with a bunch of doubloons and silver credits. Try out whatever you like. Most of the time the PT is focused on testing new features and you can get rewards on your main account for doing specific things. All of that is noted in the newsposts for that PT version.

There is also the "Modstation by MedvedevTD" which is basically the official WG Modpack, but its updated usually much slower than Aslain's.
If you want to post screenshots from the game here, please do use the PRINTSCREEN key. Just press it in the game and it will save a nice JPG screenshot in a folder of your World of Warships installation.
Podcast Addict is excellent. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Podcast Addict --->
I personally use Podcast Addict. It's free.
Here's his main site
They're also available on Youtube
On my phone(android) I use the app Podcast Addict but I know there's others available.
He also has his own app
His podcast is pretty entertaining and he has some quality guests. That being said I take most of it with a grain of salt because he gets a little over the top and stuck in his ways at times. Definitely worth a listen though.
Generally I have broken these down into broad categories but there is often overlap.
This American Life (Stories both true and fictional on a theme. Sometime funny, sometimes sad, sometimes both.)
99% invisible (Talking about design we don't notice)
Freakanomics (Really engaging podcast usually with economics or psychological focus. one of my favourite episodes investigates how the belt beat suspendors as a trouser up-holding device)
stuff you should know (I tend to pick and choose what interests me)
Ted talks/TED Radio Hour (amazing talks on damn nearly everything. Some probably should be watched due to the accompanying visuals)
in our time (Radio 4 podcast. Host invites 2-3 professors/experts to talk about a wide range of subjects.)
Stuff you missed in History class (i only listen to the podcasts on subjects i find interesting)
Hardcore History (Incredibly in depth history podcast. Multiple multi-hour podcasts. After a while they become pay only.)
12 Byzantine Rulers (Podcast about the part of the Roman Empire you don't normally think about. Host is obviously a fan of his subject and you get the feeling he doesn't try to be very objective.)
Norman Centuries (Same Host. Focuses on the Normans, their origins and legacy. Only briefly touches on the Norman conquest of Britain.)
Drama? (not sure on this genre description)
Serial (Well researched story of the murder or a teenage girl and the conviction of ex-boyfriend. The podcast is well framed so you are hooked and want to know more and are left confused as to his guilt.(or at least i was.)
The Moth (Live stories told on stage. Sometimes funny often sad. Sometimes Both. )
Sawbones (Dr and her Husband discuss the medical professions history. Very funny and you learn a lot about our ridiculous former beliefs about medicine. Plague?! Try bathing in urine and packing those boils with Your own faeces.)
Answer Me this (People write in with questions and Helen and Ollie try to answer them.)
Bunker Buddies (Are you preparing for the coming apocalypse. This is a podcast that discusses various apocalyptic scenarios and various survival techniques.)
The Modern Mann (New podcast which tries to emulate a lads mag. Discusses trends, has a feature piece, sex talk and then a track that he likes at the end. From one of the hosts of Answer me this.)
Because was once a Long Distance Hiker and long to be one again:
The Pox and Puss Podcast (Appalachian trail hikers talking about the Appalachian trail)
The Trail Show (People who have Thru hiked many long distance trails talking about all of them. Focuses on one trail a show normally)
The Outdoors Station (UK Based podcast talking about all sorts of outdoors pursuits)
Because i am a massive Nerd:
The Adventure Zone (I have never played DnD but this podcast of 3 brothers and their dad (They show up in other podcasts on this list) playing a custom DnD campaign is awesome. One of their adventures is a murder mystery on a train. another is Fast and the Furious. I think this is my favourite podcast on this list, I literally whooped with joy the last time they put one out.)
Shut up & Sit Down (Humourous podcast about Boardgames and tabletop games. They also do video reviews of boardgames and this has gotten me into the hobby.)
Top Score (Host talks to the creators of video game music)
Geek Syndicate (A podcast discussing whats new in geek news. They discuss comics, tv shows, films etc.)
The following are all video game podcasts of some sort
I listen to podcasts rather than music most of the time. I drive a lot for work and when i go hiking i like having something/somebody to listen to when i am alone. I use Podcast addict to manage my addiction
My favourites are:
My Girlfriend is very forgiving of my podcast addiction. I am a very lucky man.
Podcast Addict. Não preciso de mais nenhuma.
Other popular WoWs YouTubers/Streamers are (in no specific order) Notser, Flamu, NoZoupForYou, Arlios, Aerroon, Capt_Rye, The Mighty Jingles, iEarlGrey, The Sailing Robin, Qckslvrslash and many more. Some of them stream on Twitch.tv too, you can usually find the links on their YouTube profiles.
WoWs-Numbers and Warships.Today are popular statistics tracking sites where you can look up your own and other players progress.
Aslain's Modpack Installer (WG forum post) combines a lot of popular mods for the game into one easy download and you can select which one's you actually want to install.

But of course, in the end its your own responsibility what things you install in addition to the vanilla game.
Podcast Addict, it's the first app I actually paid for the no ads version jus because it is so great I didn't mind the ads
If you are wondering what things like DD/AFT/CE mean, you can find some explained here and here. And DD/CA/BB etc here.
Wargaming has a YouTube series called "How it works" which is worth watching.
Other popular WoWs YouTubers/Streamers are (in no specific order): Notser, Flamu, Flambass, The Mighty Jingles, Capt_Rye, The Sailing Robin, Yuzral, Arlios, Aerroon, NoZoupForYou and many more. If you understand German there is Allied Winter. Some of them stream on Twitch.tv too, you can usually find the links on their YouTube profiles.
"Maximizing XP for Dummies" is maybe worth reading.
Content by /u/thekrautboy
(This is a copy & paste response, not everything might apply to you but in general it will contain useful info for a new player)
This question has been asked many times, if you search for it here, /r/Android, /r/fossdroid, it'd pop up. I just replied to this 10 days ago. But here is what I use:
If your account has not reached Service Record Level 3 yet, then you can still make use of a referal link by another player. If you ask in the comments here, people are always willing to give you their link because both players profit from it. Simply click on the link and then login with the existing account. When you play your first Tier 6 battle, you get rewarded with a Tier 5 Premium Battleship "Texas", 80.000 Free XP and 3.000.000 silver credits, plus some signal flags. If your account is already at or over Service Record Level 3, then its too late for that. You can either create a new account, or just continue.
Other popular WoWs YouTubers/Streamers are Notser, Flamu, NoZoupForYou, Arlios, Aerroon, Capt_Rye, TheMightyJingles, iEarlGrey and many more.
And there is the weekly Warships Podcast. I recommend adding that to your favorite podcast app or something (eg. Podcast Addict), the website is #@!?.
Shipcomrade is a good site with news, and also where AprilWhiteMouse writes her detailed reviews of premium ships, as well as other articles.
If you want stay away from PvP (Random Battles) for the start, that is fine. You can also play Coop battles which are of course much easier (and quicker) but also give you less XP and credits. The Operations are a great balance between them tho. Each week is another Operation in the rotation that you can join (either with a few friends in a division or alone) and play. Some Operations only allow certain Tiers of ships, or even nations. If you want to play a specific Operation that is not the "Operation of the week" you can, but you need atleast 4 players in a division to do so. You can earn great rewards for completing the Operations (captains, XP, premium account time, etc.). But you can only earn them once (so doing the same Operation with 5 stars over and over again will give you only the usual XP and silver credits, not more days of premium account). Also note that any missions and such that reward Premium Time to your account will activate that immediately, so it may be wise to time that for the weekend or whenever you will be able to make the most from that boost.
And thank you for being really interested in the game and wanting to learn! Many more experienced players feel that new players (especially since the game launched on Steam) just want to play and expect to get good in this game by themself, and they dont want to put in any extra effort such as watching videos, reading guides, asking for help and such. The result is potato players from Tier 1 all the way up to Tier 10 and they never learn the mechanics of the game and how they are supposed to play their shipclass. So thanks for being one of those who really want to learn and get better :)

Podcast Addict on Android. I absolutely love it, but I just wish there were a synced web interface as well.
Use an app????? I use Podcast Addict
Podcast Addict ist super.
My time to shine! Here's what I usually recommend (I'll actually translate my last recommendation from Swedish), in no particular order.
First of all there's Duolingo. It's a really fun way to kickstart your learning and to build a feeling for your target language before going to more advanced stuff. It's good for practicing all those conjugations and declensions, but unfortunately it doesn't explain grammar well. However, try finding a good grammar book or website (Wikipedia is actually pretty good for this). Don't try to read it - Use it as a reference.
Then there's my favorite: Memrise.. It's based on something called spaced repetition and is basically what homework should look like. It's based on studies that are trying to find the optimal intervals for learning the words. Personally, it's been the most effective part of my language studies, by far. It's also free. If you're looking for an alternative, there's Anki which is open source, but it's unfortunately not online and you'll have to download it. My favorite courses are the frequency lists. You learn the most used words first, and then go to more and more difficult, but less and less frequently used words. Highly recommended!
Another app I absolutely adore and use daily is Clozemaster which is based on something called cloze tests. You get a sentence that is missing a word and a translation of that sentence. Your task is to write the missing word with correct conjugation. Extremely effective - but it also requires you to have a pretty good vocabulary and a good grasp of the language.
If you have a Kindle, download a dictionary. They have one-click translation which is incredibly useful. Listening comprehension goes hand in hand with reading comprehension. A good reading comprehension gives you a good listening comprehension. You can't listen if you don't know what to listen for. If you don't have a Kindle, there's Readlang.
Find podcasts. There are lots. Personally I use Podcast Addict. It's pretty easy to find good podcasts in your target language. Find something you think looks fun.
I also like this exercise I found here. You find a book, then you find the audiobook of the same book. You import the audio into Audacity or something similar, so that you can rewind, repeat, and if necessary slow down the audio. Your goal is to transcribe the sound until either you think you've got it right or until you can't transcribe more ^((what the hell is that word?)) Extremely effective for improving your listening comprehension skills.
I also love lang-8. It's a website where you can write stuff in your target language and get it corrected by other (native) people that want theirs corrected as well. The more you correct the more you get corrected. Quid pro quo. Love it!
Find movies and series with accompanying subtitles. Netflix has lots of them. I prefer series, as it can be a little hard to find something that looks fun to watch, and series are much longer.
Write to people in your target language! Download HelloTalk and get going.
Find a local language meetup. Maybe at your local College or University. There's probably one somewhere.
If you want more information about effective strategies for learning languages, I recommend you read this. It tries to distill everything we know about proven strategies for every small component in learning a language.
Subscribe to /r/languagelearning. There you can find a supporting community, dank memes, and lots and lots and lots of resources ^^for ^^learning ^^Uzbek.
Last but not least: HAVE FUN. You have to have fun, otherwise you'll quit. If you find something boring, but you realize you need to do it - do it in moderate amounts. Do 5 minutes a day. That's 76 hours in a year. Small amounts often is much better than a huge amount once in a while.
Podcast Addict is excellent (and free).
Podcast & Radio Addict on Android.
podcast addict is by far the most reliable and customizable podcast app available ATM. A must have
Edit: I think 2 of these might not be on F-Droid
The trail is how I discovered podcasts.
My. Current list is extensive. Last year I put together this list of the ones I listened to
Full support for local or SD storage.
If you are wondering what things like DD/BB/CA and CE/AFT mean, you can find some explained here.
Other popular WoWs YouTubers/Streamers are (in no specific order): Notser, Flamu, Flambass, NoZoupForYou, The Mighty Jingles, Capt_Rye, Yuzral, Arlios, Aerroon, The Sailing Robin and many more. Some of them stream on Twitch.tv too, you can usually find the links on their YouTube profiles.
A similar site is Proships.ru with plenty of information about ship stats. It does offer some small advantages over WoWsFT but to get most of it in english, you have to use this direct link to the list of ships.
(copy pasta, but some things might be useful for you)
When asking for such invite links and/or codes, please always note on which server-region you are playing on. This also is very helpful when you are looking for a clan or other server specific things. So please do mention it right away because it saves us all time when we dont have to ask.
If you want to post screenshots from the game here, please do use the PRINTSCREEN key. Just press it in the game and it will save a nice JPG screenshot in a folder of your World of Warships installation. Then you can simply upload that to a image hosting website, for reddit most people prefer Imgur.com.
I use Podcast Addict and find it pretty straightforward. Maybe give that a go?
Podcast Addict - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en_US
Not OP, but I switched to Podcast Addict
Been extremely satisfied with it.
I think it's Podcast Addict
Podcast addict er gratis og funker bra:
Mulig du må justere språk for å få søkt etter norske podcaster.
If you have an Android phone, I recommend installing Podcast Addict.
I love Podcast Addict on my Android (speed and silence control) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
Here's the raw MP3:
This is the address I put in my podcast program:
For my android devices, I use "Podcast Addict" for podcasts
(I have to give a shout out for being so happy with it. The paid version is more than worth it)
It has a slight learning curve for dealing with all the features and options. It has a great search engine as well.
Podcast Addict for Android read the RSS just fine. ;)
Use Podcast Addict.
Yeah, I use podcast addict too, it's a pretty good app.
Here's the link for the Google Play version.
Podcast Addict on Android is the best completely free app. It does everything you could want it to do.
Podcast Addict (2021.10.1)
Apple Podcast (iOS)
Breaker (iOS & Android)
Castbox (iOS & Android)
Radio Public (iOS & Android)
Spotify (iOS & Android)
Stitcher (iOS & Android)
TuneIn (iOS & Android)
Laughable (iOS & Android)
AudioBoom (unsure if on phone. Website available)
PlayerFM (iOS & Android)
Pocketcasts (iOS & Android)
Google Podcast (Android)
ListenNotes (Unsure if on phone. Website available)
Podcast Addict (Google Play store. Android)
The Podcast App (iOS & Android)
Himalaya (iOS & Android)
Notecast (iOS & Android)
Podchaser (unsure if on phone. Website available)
Podcast Republic (Website & Android)
That's all I got atm, there's definitely some more out there.
This! The lack of this feature finally brought me to Podcast Addict.
Eu uso o podcast Addict e se eu quiser baixar alguma coisa do youtube eu uso o youtube-dl
and if you were using the maximumfun website directly, looks like they are grouped there together rather than chronologically as aired.
(with 'fake dates' to achieve that effect. amnesty 1-5 actually aired jan-feb 2018, not early april 2018)
which is bad for the native listening order, as you have noted.
podcast apps will display the true order, where amnesty 1-5 played between commitment and dust, then announcements, then amnesty ep 6+
my default suggestion for robust podcast apps:
(or a desktop rss or podcast app)
using the podcast source rss url of https://feeds.simplecast.com/cYQVc__c
I see that you're on android so I'd recommend using podcast addict
Podcast Addict. Not the prettiest but has every feature and super reliable.
Podcast Addict : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
And here a second reply from me, copy/paste, intended for new players. If most of that is already known to you, ignore. If not, good.
I like podcast addict a lot. It can do everything you just said.
I highly recommend you get some sort of podcatcher app instead. If you're on Android, I recommend Podcast Addict.
Not pretty but highly customizable.
Podcast Addict: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
I don't have an Android, but this app looks like it could meet all your high and tight needs: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Also, LinkedIn is helpful.
Just get a podcast app (perhaps this one) and subscribe to some good podcasts. The last podcast recommendation thread was just over a week ago. /r/Christians had a similar thread a couple months ago. Many churches these days--maybe even yours!--have a sermon feed. I find it helpful during the week to go back and take a second listen to the sermon I heard the previous Sunday, or to catch up if I've missed part of a series.
Besides that, you can look on www.sermonaudio.com and subscribe to sermon feeds from there. Take a look at their featured speakers and see if you recognize any names. And if you really only want sermons, they have an app.
With Podcast Addict you can add MP3s as "virtual podcasts", your files then behave as if they were regular podcasts.
Uso da anni Podcast Addict e mi sembra la migliore, supporta anche gli streaming delle radio.
hahahha. Another Pockecasts Fuckup?!
Please jump ship to the most amazing free podcast app ever podcast addict
I second Podcast Addict. Great app, tons of options. Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Player? Maybe you actually need Podcast addict
Try Podcast Addict :)
If you listen on iPhone/iTunes: Click Here
If you listen on Tune-in Radio (not posted yet): Click Here
If you want to listen live (M-F 2:00-3:15PM): Click Here
Note: If you have an android, or don't use iTunes, and are looking to subscribe to podcasts, this app is great: Podcast Addict
All you need to do for podcast addict is search Marek v Whyshynski and the podcast will pop up. The new episode is up on it.
Podcast Addict - tried a LOT of podcasting apps and this is my favorite one. I like the interface (although it does take a while to get used to) and LOVE the variable speed playback - I have way to many podcasts I want to listen to, to only do it at normal speed :)
Hovernote - for some reason Facebook text input fields act realy weird on my phone regardless of the browser I use (I refuse to install any of their branded apps), so I just call this from the notification area, write my stuff there and then copy/paste it - works like a charm.
Alarm Pro/ZdClock - after last Alarm Droid made it into ugly unusable mess I needed an alternative alarm/reminder app and this one was the best one I found - multiple alarm types, volume ramping, custom repeating alarms - it's all here and I like it. Wish the interface was a bit better and more intuitive, but oh well - after playing with it a bit I now know where all options are, so it's all good.
you can get the original versions via the website mp3 streams/downloads
mp3 from site
mp3 downloaded from rss feed with dynamic ads
if you are android you can download the mp3s (either on device or add via usb from desktop) and place them in a folder and play them as a 'virtual podcast' using the Podcast Addict app.
if iOS, could use an audiobook app.
edit: mp3 url cheat list
The best method would be downloading a podcast app* on your phone.
And search for "The Adventure Zone"
or "add by rss url" of https://feeds.simplecast.com/cYQVc__c
starting with the 2014 "Here There Be Gerblins - Chapter One"
*My (free) podcast apps of choice would be:
Overcast for iOS
Podcast addict for Android
Alternatively you can also use:
Their site https://maximumfun.org/podcasts/adventure-zone/?_post-type=episode&_sort=date_asc
Youtube ("Balance" arc playlist) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXqjz3LWBa4&list=PLCxdZGGtMp4kif6xYrdhuJHTVYwlfQcGw
Podcast Addict lets you define where you want media stored.
/u/Passerby421 is right. To add to this, Hello Internet also has a Patreon if you want to support the podcast directly but don't need/want to buy anything from their ads. That being said, I personally like listening to my podcasts on Podcast Addict.
Also, general question to anyone who may know: are the videos on the Hello Internet YouTube channel monetized?
It's been reported this morning that this is happening.
Might be time to try a real podcast app, like Podcast Addict or Pocket Casts
Podcast Addict for android.
I've been very happy with Podcast addict
Not sure, I don't use Spotify. I listened to them through the Podcast Addict app on Android.
Appropå podcasts så är den här appen sketans bra.
C'est un sujet qui revient souvent sur le sous:
Sous Android je conseille Podcast addict
Try podcast addict has a favorate function for episodes and sort by those.
Podcast Addict works really well. :)

Since I'm sure someone is wondering: it's Podcast Addict
Listener number 3 checking in, just now found their livestream URL on their website:
Also found this on their about page:
> KXLU is a non-commercial, educational station broadcasting from the Westchester campus of Loyola Marymount University
> As a member of the greater Los Angeles community ... KXLU offers a widely diverse and alternative programming schedule which includes the following genres: progressive and independent rock, classical, opera, world, dance, country, metal, noise, jazz, punk, kids, ginecore, oldies, surf, psychedelic, reggae, theater & film as well as being home to one of the most successful and longest running Latin radio programs in the country, Alma Del Barrio.
Edit: For those out there like me who are living in 2017, I believe you can add this livestream to podcast players like Podcast Addict on Android by adding the URL http://www.ednixon.com:8120/stream to the Radio Stations section. I listen to a ton of outdated podcasts and don't watch TV, so this live feed may be my only live connection to the world.
I use podcast addict it's free and easy to use.
I'm on Android and am really happy using Podcast Addict.
I use this personally.
Una cosa minima es no pasarla tan mal en el viaje, yo uso https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=es_419 para escuchar cosas interesantes y aprender cosas.

Comecei a escutar por volta de 2010. Não deixo de ouvir pelo menos um por semana, encaixa com a rotina e é uma mídia fantástica. ~~Assim que possível atualizarei os links e com recomendações.~~ Feito, todos podcasts com um recomendado.
Into the nexus: Sobre Heroes of the Storm, jogo "MOBA" da Blizzard. Embora o host principal não estivesse, o episódio com Caster e analista Dreadnaught foi bem bom.
The Angry Chicken: Sobre Hearthstone, jogo digital de cartas da Blizzard. Recomendo um especial sobre direção de arte com Ben Thompson sobre o jogo, desde o início. Recomendo por várias referências visuais fodas.
The Angry Nerd: Podcast solo. Qualquer coisa que der na telha de Garrett, o host dos dois podcasts acima. Sobre coisas que ele consome, visita a eventos, e até mesmo do casamento dele que foi na mesma semana da Blizzcon, que obviamente ele fez a loucura de comparecer em ambos.
Thorin: Analista/Jornalista de CS:GO e "historiador de esports"(+10 anos de experiencia). Discussões históricas, sobre o meta, entrevista com jogadores, sobre previsões/revisões de campeonatos, polêmicas e-sporticas. Fora de CSGO, recomendo sobre Mídia culpando videogames por violência. Sobre CSGO, recomendo sobre SK Gaming era, um ponto de vista gringo falando dos nossos atuais bicampeões de major.
The Richard Lewis Show: Analista/Jornalista de CS:GO. Não necessariamente do jogo. Recomendo um sobre se tornar um jornalista de e-sports, que parece ser algo tão raro, que os exemplos não cabem como orientação.
Monstercat Podcast: Música eletrônica. Bom pra quando tem que focar em outra coisa(Sou monotarefa). O especial de 100 episódios reune as melhores :D Um pouco off-topic, eles tem um canal 24h no twitch pra stream de músicas.
Nerdcast: Ainda relevante, clássico bem feito. Acho que a minha época preferida é +- nos Chaves, Virus, Bactérias e Macacos e baseball.
Now Loading: Foi uma excelente descoberta na época. Ainda dá pra achar por aí mesmo tendo morrido. A qualidade das pautas e humor colocados eram sensacionais. No podcast de Valve eles conseguiram entrevistar a atriz que dubla Glados, de portal.
Todos do jogabilidade:
Vértice: Sobre notícias e recomendações de jogos(recentes, ou talvez não). Recomendando um aleatório, que fala sobre boatos do NX, XCOM, Valkyrie Profile, Tomb Raider, Kojima Productions e outros.
Linha Quente: Descontraído, respondendo perguntas aleatórias. Não sei o que recomendar, então um sobre achar seus pais num sex-shop
Jack: Sobre Animes. Há muito tempo não consumo anime, mas dos que eu consumi como Full Metal Alchemist são sensacionais.
Dash: Discussão sobre um tema de jogos. Pode ser um jogo específico(destrinchando tudo, desenvolvimento, desenvolvedores, influencias, história, jogabilidade, etc) ou sobre um documentário, personalidade, console, etc. Recomendo se jogou algum dos temas(Bastion, To the moon, Portal 2, Undertale, DKC2, Persona 4, e muitos outros), ou o mais recente sobre Reinvenções.
Fora da Caixa: Tudo que não seja videogames. Séries, viagens, visitas, documentários, filmes, etc. Gostei bastante do último, que conta a visita a 3 restaurantes(coreano, noodle bar e temático medieval) e Blink 182.
Hipsters ponto tech: Sobre tecnologia, programação, mercado, etc. Ainda inclusivo pra quem não é tão ligado em computação. Acho que recomendaria o de Cloud, que é um assunto popular.
Mamilos: Podcast sobre qualquer assunto polêmico, sempre oferecendo o debate. Me surpreendo como as hosts conseguem se manter atualizadas e com opiniões sobre tudo. Recomendo um dos meus podcasts favoritos, sobre ENEM, morrer, stress no trabalho.
Naruhodo (do B9): Sobre curiosidades, enigmas, mitos populares, etc. Com explicações científicas e tudo mais. Super curto, entre 10~15min normalmente. Recomendo sobre Mulheres ovularem juntas se morarem juntas.
Braincast: Publicidade, mercado, criatividade, entretenimento. Recomendo sobre Carreira: Dinheiro vs diversão, um debate pra todos, sobre fazer o que gosta(ou não), gerações, satisfação.
Recomendação de aplicativo:
Android, you want Podcast Addict
I've uses this app without any problems to download podcasts from iTunes.
Another really good (and free) podcast app is Podcast Addict
Yes in the google store
Free and does everything.
Couldn't live without it now.
BBC Sounds is an absolute embarrassment isn't it. Fortunately you can subscribe to any of the podcasts via RSS in a proper podcast app. The RSS link is at the top right (on a desktop/laptop) on this type of page.
I like Podcast Addict on Android and Overcast on iOS.
50 Things That Changed The Modern Economy is another must, pops up on World Service from time to time but the individual 9-minute episodes can be listened to in any order - two series now, both excellent.
No, because it would be against the youtube terms of service (so enjoy getting your app in the Play store) and any band aid solution would likely be fragile and subject to breaking at any time.
sideload an app like Ymusic for an easy (but manual) audio only youtube ripper - plonk the mp3s into a folder hooked up to Podcast Addict as a 'virtual podcast' folder.
you can even add a youtube channel RSS inside a podcast app - it won't play the files but will notifiy you when something is uploaded on that channel
>to find a youtube channel rss feed
>>use inoreader.com, paste in youtube channel url, then 'view feed information' 'xml address' is the rss feed for that channel
Podcast Addict allows this in settings > Player > Audio Player > Volume boost. Probably not lightweight.
can set your own tags/playlists and sort by podcast (then publish date) etc too
you've got two options
1) migrate to free 'podcast addict' app.
download the x32 .mp3s into your device's 'download' or other folder.
then add that folder as a 'virtual podcast' via podcast addict
(which treats a local folder of mp3s as a normal podcast)
or if you don't want to move app for this purpose:
2) construct* your own RSS feed
^just ^need ^to ^copy ^and ^paste ^the ^mp3 ^links ^and ^add ^a ^title
using the direct archive.org mp3 links:
e.g. as 01-01.mp3, 01-02.mp3 etc (for all 32 mp3 files)
here is an example of the first two
which you would add to your podcast app as
I use Podcast Addict.
No-one has mentioned Podcast Addict here yet. It's one of the two I always recommend it for Android, that and Pocket Casts.
Podcast Addict is very nice.
I don't think it's on iPhones
Podcast Addict has this feature too:
Podcast Addict for Android is pretty good also. Pretty, pretty, pretty good.
I have no idea where they save to, but I could probably try.
It's a free Android app, for the record.
"Must have" depends on the person. Here are SOME things I use.
The app Podcast Addict allows you to add bookmarks.
It's available on Android, I don't know about IOS.
It's basically just an RSS feed.
Podcast Addict is great too (and free). Been using it for years.
You're generally listening to them on your phone, any smartphone, as the apps that exist for them make it really easy to stay up to date with new episodes. (it's an RSS feed, if you know what that is) I'm on android and personally find that Podcast Addict has all the functions I could ask for.
However that doesn't mean you need a phone in the first place. All podcasts that aren't live streamed are just files you're downloading, usually a .mp3. So if, for instance, you have a high-security job where phones aren't allowed, you could download the files for the podcasts you want and put them on any cheap-ass mp3 player. (speaking from experience) It's an additional hassle, but totally doable.
There are podcast networks that apps like Podcast Addict can be aware of, this is the "home base" that can be useful for finding shows you like. So you could have the Radiotopia network who's family includes the aforementioned 99pi and Allusionist. If you're just starting out with podcasts, the shows from Radiotopia and the Relay network are pretty good. I subscribe to a few podcasts from other networks as well, WNYC, how stuff works, and 5by5. From just those networks the count of different podcasts to choose from is nearly 100.
Finding podcasts that are not in a network is mostly word of mouth, /r/podcasts, or threads like this. For example, the podcast that got me into them in the first place, Hello Internet is not on on any network. It's CGP Grey and Brady Haran, two youtubers talking about... stuff. Flags, plane crashes, conferences, youtube, voting systems, stuff. I really like both Grey and Brady, so I really enjoy listen to them talk about anything.
I only learned about their podcast when it started because Grey promoted it in his videos. From there, they mentioned other podcasts here and there, and I looked into them, liked 'em, and added more and more.
I recommend Podcast Addict for Android. It's free!
For news it's
The interesting thing about hourly news podcasts is watching news uncover. For instance the german truck incident I got to watch the news unfold on that almost live and it's .. interesting. Honestly keeping up with my hourly podcast and Fresh Air takes up a lot of my time. I only refresh 3 times a day by default.
The rest of my podcasts are hobby specific
Or Stuff I've always wanted to hear
or story based podcasts
or a few search terms
I think slightly more interesting than what i listen to is how and for me it's Podcast Addict. Ever since I stopped using iTunes when my computer crashed I've been looking for a mobile replacement and the Addict is the best I've ever seen. It's amazing. I'll probably spend some reward money and pay for the ad removal.
Ich bin mit Podcast & Radio Addict ziemlich zufrieden. Falls Du diese App auch kennst, kannst du beide vergleichen?
It's pretty easy to find them once you have an app.
This option is also in Podcast Addict - ignore audio focus requests. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
I don't use itunes personally, so I don't know, but they list this on their twitter @presbycast:
Give it a try.
I found them using the app that I use, podcast addict, as an alternative.
They're still working out some of the bugs in their recording software (show #4 had some hard times), but they say they've invested in some new equipment.
Also, they are planning to have Dr. Clark on later, at some point.
I got to know @wresbyterian and @chortlesweakly during my many moons commenting at DG Hart's blog. They are solid guys, always worth tuning in to what they are thinking about. Sorry, longer comment than I intended haha
Grace and peace.
Podcast Addict is the best podcast subscription app I have used for Android.
Podcast Addict - Para podcasts e rádios online. Não uso muito a parte de rádio, mas é o melhor pra podcast na minha opnião.
Portal - Drag and drop de arquivos do pc pro celular. Graças a ele acho que eu nunca tive de ligar meu celular no pc pra passar música.
Poweramp (Trial) - O full version dele é pago, mas custa apenas R$ 3,59 e vale cada centavo.
Ich höre ganz gerne Echo der Welt, sowas wie das Auslandsjournal zum Hören. Außerdem Geo Audio, da sind manchmal wirklich interessante Reiseberichte dabei.
Ich benutze podcast addict als App, da kann man auch einfach mal (nach Kategorien sortiert) durch das Angebot stöbern.
It is already back - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
My guess is that somebody created a bunch of fake requests to trigger automatic takedown.
I use podcast addict.
Try downloading youtube documentaries and shows you like via wifi and see how it frees you from using your own data. Let me help start you off
For downloading media
For podcasts download this and gain access to a myriad of audio sources
Also most importantly dont forget to turn off background data usage from the apps. Thats how you get screwed when you dont have data insurance
why not just use podcast addict?
I use podcast addict
Some Spotifys podcasts are exclusive to the platform, dont be surprised if some of them aren't available when searching with another app.
Podcast addict is the most feature filled, it had a setting for everything but can be a little confusing.
Pocketcasts probably had the best UI and workflow, not as fairer filled but it'll cover most of your bases.
FOSS Antennapod is also a good option
Almost any podcast app will do you ( some RSS readers are also integrating podcast feeds as well) it really depends on what features you need - device sync, playlists, speed control, trim silence......
Sub wiki media page
On android you can functionally consume most YouTube content effectively as a podcast through <em>Newpipe</em> to either background play audio only stream or download as .mp3, which you could sideload into an app like <em>Podcast Addict</em>
>Problem is, I have never downloaded an audiobook app nor have I heard one.
Let's start with the APP... the thing is that doesn't matter that much. You can download Spotify, or Audible - both have most (if not all) podcasts available everywhere else, plus some exclusive if you use a paid plan. What's probably worth mentioning is Audible Great Courses. Of course, there is the Apple podcast, Stitcher, Google podcast... honestly those are all very similar. My personal choice for the podcast is Podcast Addict - it's free (unless you want to reward the developer) it's intuitive enough to get you started, but it's also very customizable once you develop your preferences and reading stales.
> I want to learn new languages, learn about how to invest money, and keep up to date with science/technology among other things (physics major).
I only have the recommendation for 2 finance podcasts and 2 specific episodes in
Stacking Benjamin Podcasts - it's about personal finance - it's perfect. It's smart, it's funny, you'll actually learn all the basics while having a blast - there are some inside jokes there, so don't get discouraged if it feels awkward at first. Give a couple of episodes a try.
ChooseFI - it's about FI-nacial independence. How to earn, invest your money, and how to organize your life, so a small change made today aggravates to a massive impact on your tomorrow's life. List ofintroductory episodes. I strongly recommend starting with WHY.
The Freakonomics podcast it's not about personal finance. It's a podcast about various topics, and about looking at topics from a different perspective. The tagline is "a hidden side of everything" and it's absolutely amazing. People will hate you at parties because you'll constantly say to them "well... it's not really how it works...". But the podcast is amazing. They have 2 episodes about personal finance that EVERYBODY should listen to:
The Stupidest Thing You Can Do With Your Money (Ep. 297 Rebroadcast) - it literally changed my life. It's the most important financial lesson anyone can get.
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Money (But Were Afraid to Ask) (Rebroadcast) - it's all you need to know in one episode. Really. All the previous podcast just elaborate on the principles explained in this episode.
Have fun :)
I've been using (Podcast Addict)[ https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict] and really like it. It doesn't cover your #5, but does all the others.
This is my personal favorite
But there are tons and tons of them.
Are you on iOS or Android?
The free & robust Android app Podcast Addict supports episode title include/exclude keyword filtering
you can use a tool such as https://siftrss.com/ to create a custom RSS feed that you can use in any app, with some more advanced custom parameters
get the podcasts rss feed, paste it in the box
single title match:
multi title match:
finally: episodes published on Fridays
get your final custom rss feed, add it in your podcast app or service or choice
BBC Global News Podcast:
[SIFTRSS] include items where pubDate contains Fri
Google Podcasts does not support RSS links (or OPML import/export of subscriptions). So it is not possible.
These are key features for a robust podcast app that adheres to the open spirit of podcasting.
My suggested (free) apps to use, depending on platform:
I really love "Podcast Addict" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Absolutely Podcast Addict.
Android Podcast Addict.
Can search by either podcast or episodes and set result sort options (e.g. newest first)
Use quote marks in search
Can even save a search 'as a podcast'
If not android, you could try online at https://www.listennotes.co
[SOCIETY & CULTURE, RELATIONSHIPS, PHILOSOPHY] Kerekewere | Episode 3: Bené ziet gelijkenissen met haar broer Bart SFW
http://destandaard.be/audio / itunes /spotify / Podcast Addict App (iTunes search engine). / Website / Reddit Thread
Summary: A [dutch] podcast about the serious topic suicide. Belgian journalist Brecht Castel shares the story of his father and combines it with the stories of some key figures. Relating this personal take to the societal problem that suicide is. The third episode is now out and the fourth one released at the end of this week.
personally recommend to start with C2 E1 'Curious Beginnings' (jan 16th 2018) & to skip the 'talks machina' meta discussion episodes
first feed (C1 & C2 e1-19)
second feed (C2 e20+)
p.s. in general i'd recommend a more robust & featured dedicated podcast app rather than using Spotify
e.g. free: Android's Podcast Addict or iOS's Overcast
non spotify links
first feed http://critrole.nerdistind.libsynpro.com
second feed https://anchor.fm/criticalrole
[SOCIETY & CULTURE, RELATIONSHIPS, PHILOSOPHY] Kerekewere | Episode 2: Bart en Ria in therapie bij prof. dr. Dirk De Wachter
Summary: A [dutch] podcast about the serious topic suicide. Belgian journalist Brecht Castel shares the story of his father and combines it with the stories of some key figures relating it to the societal problem that suicide is in Belgium. The second episode is now out and third one released at the end of this week.
I would heavily recommend trying audio fiction podcasts which feature anthology stories.
>Audio fiction podcast list
archive.org: Twilight Zone Radio Dramas / RSS feed
<em>The Other Stories</em>
And many others (see: 'standalone' tab)
If new to podcasts, recommended free & robust apps:
Android: <em>Podcast Addict</em>
Podcast Addict lets you sort (& play) shows into tag cateogories
I assume you are talking about campaign 1 of the Critical Role D&D podcast.
over the last month or so, their original 'archived' podcast feed has been removed and replaced by another one.
you need to re add the new archived feed into your app.
you can listen to c1 and c2 e1-19 on this podcast rss feed:
then c2 e20+ is:
p.s. not relevant to the issue, but my default robust app recommendation for each platform is:
iOS Overcast, Android Podcast Addict
first suggestion: try a dedicated podcast app instead of spotify.
e.g. free and robust iOS Overcast or Android Podcast Addict
List of horror, science fiction & fantasy fiction
my personal 'introduction suggestions' would be these short story shows per genre:
Escapepod (science fiction), Podcastle (fantasy) and Pseudopod (horror)
Along with their 'weird cousin' mix that is The Drabblecast ('speculative fiction')
When it comes to 'monsters' you might also enjoy The Twenty Percent True Podcast's stories.
>D&D style things
e.g. "The Dungeoncast"
>Welcome to The Dungeoncast! A Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition podcast where co-hosts, Will and Brian, explore all things D&D including lore, game mechanics, and creative concepts. Whether it's a detailed discussion on the strangulation techniques of Black Puddings or our continual drawing of Demogorgon's attention, join us as we have casual, educational, and humorous conversation about the world's most popular tabletop RPG. Together we delve into the endless possibilities and unforeseen complications of character creation, role playing, and dungeon mastering.
You can use podcast addict . I think it will meet your requirements
That will work with any pod catcher (you can't avoid these just by using a different app, baked into the rss feed)
>I've noticed many people miss the old ads, compared to the newer dynamic adverts and their odd editing in/repetition when going through a backlog.
>You can still access the original mp3s on their site.
>I generated a custom rss feed by extracting from an archived copy of original rss feed
>Includes all episodes - excluding Graduation - in release order with episode titles.
In terms of general podcast app quality recommendations I always suggest:
Podcast Addict for Android
^/u/AmericanMadl ^/u/BadWolf117 ^/u/Bearded_Titan ^/u/GrandmaSlappy ^/u/Jhalipino ^/u/Knock21 ^/u/PM_ME_LEGIT_ANYTHING ^/u/Pirateboy04 ^/u/SSJAbeLincoln420 ^/u/agentprotocol ^/u/andrzej133 ^/u/belafonte33 ^/u/lunaotter ^/u/spiderkickspiderkiss
Well its back now (in Canada at least). https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
you need a real podcast app
recommended to start from campaign 2 ep 1 'curious beginnings'
(can skip the news etc to start at 17 minutes in of this episode)
Add by rss:
old rss (C1 & C2 ep1-19)
new rss (C2 ep20+)
unofficial combined <strong>rss</strong>
yes, but you need a real podcast app
recommended to start from campaign 2 ep 1 'curious beginnings' (can skip the news etc to start at 17 minutes in of this episode)
the easiest way would be using a podcast app on a phone/tablet.
My (free) podcast apps of choice would be:
Podcast addict for Android.
I've always appreciated how Podcast Addict allows us to choose which ads we want (banner, popup etc) check out what they've got going.
I'm personally okay with those obnoxious video ads, just no more than 15 seconds please...
then searching for 'The Adventure Zone' and listening to the oldest episode in order.
alternatively add to the apps using this url
Depends how the podcast app was made and which search database it uses and if podcast creators have made sure their podcast is added to that directory.
RSS URL is the universal release format
In pocketcasts just paste the RSS URL into the search bar
What shows were u trying to add?
I use PODCAST ADDICT android app which lets you switch between iTunes or app based searching
If iOS I would recommend Overcast
Spotify is a terrible app for podcasts, both in terms of functionality/usability and 'spirit of the medium'.
>My (free) podcast apps of choice would be Overcast for iOS and Podcast addict for Android.
I use Podcast Addict
I use Podcast Addict
100+ fictional audio drama series
Horror, sci-fi, fantasy and anything in between audio fiction. Both short stories and series
Dungeons and Dragon (D&D) tabletop roleplaying discussion or 'actual play' shows (with a few other systems too)
p.s. for those new to podcasts:
due to their fully featured organisational and player features & customisations.
If you are looking for similar AUDIO PODCAST material:
All are obviously free to enjoy.
Assorted list suggestions:
206 comment post of the above
If you are looking for similar podcast material:
also if the youtube content you follow is more audio talk focused rather than video:
you can just download them as mp3 audio files and then manually add them into a podcast app
e.g. android's podcast addict (add folder as 'virtual podcast' feature)
If you want a ton of options, I'd suggest Podcast Addict: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Default options works just fine, but there's a lot you can tweak as well.
sounds weird. perhaps try in another app for this case.
> Overcast for iOS and Podcast addict for Android.
For what it's worth, Episode 2 does show up on player.fm, which I'd set up for you when I added your Podcast to the "COMPLETE List of Raiders Podcasts" a couple weeks ago (when it started).. I set it up to pull directly from your RSS feed:
At the same time I'm looking at that page on player.fm, it (Episode 2) doesn't show up on Apple's product.
Also, it downloaded automatically on my regular podcast player (Podcast Addict) no problem, without me needing to do anything - so I saw it come through when it posted.
tag: u/TheClintonCartel in case you were really wanting to listen to it.
My (free) podcast apps of choice would be Overcast for iOS and Podcast addict for Android.
Both fully featured and customizable, and have the crucial 'silence skip' feature.
CR's campaign 2 episodes 1 to 19 are on their old original geek & sundry podcast feed.
i don't know the specifics of spotify, beyond it being a terrible closed garden - that try to strong arm people to use their service by exclusive show availability - and generally poor podcast experience.
Apple iOS: Overcast
Android: Podcast addict
both offer "silence skip" and are free with full app features with optional paid version to remove the minimal ads
Also suggesting podcast addict here
I paid for the pro version of my podcast app.
>I never listened to podcasts but want to start
recommended podcast app to use
>because I watch some "podcast" type YouTube tech related videos such as the WAN show on YouTube by LinusTechTips. Though it's not a real podcast but is there anything like that?
This is also available as a podcast 'The WAN Show Podcast' #link
That's weird - that's presumably an issue with Pocket Casts (odd) as it's available on every major platform/database I've come across.
If Pocket Casts lets you add any by submitting the RSS Feed, here's Fly Sweep Podcast's RSS Feed:
(you usually just need to copy/paste it into such a Submission feature)
I'm assuming you're set on using Pocket Casts, but if not, Podcast Addict (Google Play) is arguably the #1 Podcast focused app. Very popular, and very highly rated.
I'd went through and also broke down / created a complete walkthrough of how to set it up & optimize the settings as well in that post, but I'll paste the relevant part below for your convenience:
"If you'd like to know how to use Podcast Addict to get your football and Raiders fix, I've also put together a complete guide and walk-through for that as well.
Once you've got your feet wet, I'd recommend taking a quick couple-few minutes to ensure your settings are ripe to make things easy and smooth for you. Since you only need to set things up once, we might as well do it right.

Hope this helps!
¿como lo agrego en mi lector de podcast?
Podcast Addict has been my go-to for a couple years now. As an audio playback app it's better than...almost anything I've used. You can search for pretty much any podcast and then subscribe to them, can stream or download for offline playback, and keeps all your content organized and saves your spot for each one. I'm currently working my way through a handful of podcasts, each one at a different spot.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Didn't even know Google Podcast has it.
Because both offer the crucial "silence skip" features and are free with full app features with optional paid version to remove the minimal ads
1] to rip youtube audio
2] to play mp3s as a podcast
add as 'virtual podcast' folder using the Podcast Addict android app.
Podcast Addict has a episode filter for "title must include" option and every feature of the app is free, nothing is behind a paywall, it's just to say thank you:
Podcast Addict (2020.2)
Because both offer the crucial "silence skip" features and are free with full features with optional paid version to remove the minimal ads
>but I am willing to get other apps or services (android phone)
p.s. Podcast Addict ftw [can even add your own local mp3s 'as podcasts'] e.g. youtube stripped or audiobooks etc
Podcast addict will replaciate overcast's voice boost and silence skip and is ultimately a more custosmisable and feature rich app even compared to overcast
go to app suggestions:
>I started watching the show QI then listening to it while walking. I have started listening to Stephen Fry's 7 Deadly Sins podcast
>A podcast from the QI offices in which the writers of the hit BBC show huddle around a microphone and discuss the best things they've found out this week.
app wise for phone/tablets:
if you are looking for some other fictional podcasts:
short story etc list
100+ series list
see also /r/audiodrama
both free, with optional paid option to support/remove small ads (rather than gated core features)
both have voice boost + silence skip too.
Wanted to give a shoutout to Podcast Addict, have been using for years and even though I can probably unify my podcasts with Spotify, or Google Music, I still use his app. The dev is super responsive and does updates often. Have had nothing but great experiences with this app, can't recommend it enough. Lot of special tweaks you can do, like giving your podcasts a custom priority so they appear in your playlist in a given order. Can also filter certain keywords, and lengths out of the update process so you don't get dupes if they post an entire podcast, and also individual episodes.
That's the app I have used
Update 4, perhaps the most important so far: I tried to add both RSS feeds to Podcast Addict, and surprise, surprise, they add just fine:
And more than that, they play just fine too! And yes, it shows the duration for unplayed episodes as them being --:-- long, which is fine by me here, and would be fine in pocketcasts too.
Having tried this, we can conclude, that however much blame may or may not lie with LibriVox's feed, the problem is not insurmountable for other podcast players. Or maybe this is just a downright bug in pocketcasts? At any rate, I would hate to have to use 2 apps, so I am still interested in a solution that works with pocketcasts.
Logcat can detect the total duration of and how far you are into a podcast on Podcast Addict. I haven't tried this with any other app but I assume that there's good chance that this profile could be adapted for other apps.
The profile pauses Podcast Addict at night and when there are less than 10 seconds remaining in the podcast.
Note: Logcat returns all durations in ms for Podcast Addict.
My current use case is to make it easier to finish podcasts in the morning since I go to sleep while listening to them. It's a pain to find episode 140/173 when it's marked as played, now I don't have to do that!
The best: podcast addict
It's paid and definitely worth it
You can also use AntennaPod if you like free and open source.
Both can save to SD card and both have dark mode + black(AMOLED) themes.
the android Podcast Addict app allows you to add device folders as "virtual podcasts" for just dragging and dropping mp3s via usb (whether those are manually copied podcasts or audiobooks)
if your phone has a SD card can put the files on that too
when it comes to a desktop podcast manager? never tried one, but googling suggests 'Gpodder' as an option? it might even have some degree of 'device syncing'?
Podcast Addict (4.14)
App wise (both free)
Overcast for iOS (also has a browser player that syncs up)
Can search within either app to add the podcasts by name
(or by copying and pasting their 'rss feed' address URLs manually)
Try podcast addict I think it supports radio as well and the ads are not obtrusive
Im sorry for spamming you with lots of content. But if you find the conversation interesting, you will probably like this;
[Paul VanderKlay's Podcast] John Vervaeke, Jordan Peterson and Hubert Dreyfus, the Frame Problem and God #paulVanderklaysPodcast
http://podplayer.net/?id=82947688 via @PodcastAddict https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Or the same thing on YouTube; https://youtu.be/W4kFnshkORY
I'll just leave this here.
It's this one
iOS or Android?
Android: Podcast addict supports silence skipping as well as adding 'virtual podcasts' pointing at a folder of mp3s. (free for all above needs)
iOS: Overcast has silence skip (free) and the paid ability to upload custom mp3s
Podcast addict app for android; https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
Then search for any podcast you want. You can share links like this; https://paulvanderklay.podbean.com/feed/ which can be opened by the spp. You van download for offline listening.
fyi you can download a mp3 of a youtube video from a variety of sites
some podcast apps can even treat local files/folders as 'virtual podcasts' too, like Podcast Addict (android). on iOS overcast's paid option allows mp3 upload as well.
or you could upload the mp3 to archive.org and generate a rss feed too, such as via https://huffduffer.com/ or https://fourble.co.uk
Podcast addict. I keep at least 3 episodes downloaded at a time https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict
I'm having a problem with some podcasts, and I don't know if it's just my phone. Can someone confirm if they have the same issue, too? Here's how to replicate the problem.
I'm getting this error only with feedpress-hosted podcasts.
About that. I use two things and I think you should too, for the time being. For direct exam comparison and mental prep YouTube does fine. It has hundreds of videos.
When I want to just chill I use my podcast app for some spicy Japanese practice. I get to listen to people talk about anime and games whilst studying for my exam. Win-win
Podcast app is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
1) Are the podcasts stored on an SD card that may be failing?
2) consider an alternative podcast app like Podcast Addict
Thank you! I will check it out. Link for personal reference: link
I began with these "beginner podcasts"
* Tell me something I don't know
* Planet Money
* Hidden Brain
* 99% invisible
* This American Life
* The Future of everything (WSJ)
the above ones are non-series, ie you could pick any episode & listen to it.
Crime ones that I like are below. these need to begin at Episode-1
* Bear Brook
* Dr Death
sleepy time podcast:
* nothing much happens
>Is there some kind of database where I can filter podcasts?
yes, if your phone is Android, use podcast addict app. and it has podcasts all categorised.
I haven't tried Podcast Republic but I've been very happy with Podcast Addict
If you're on Android, Podcast Addict has that feature buried in Settings > Playback statistics.
I'm not so sure, because I don't use it so often, but on iOS, I think Pocket Casts has that feature as well.
Edit: I just read that back, I assume sorting by most listened Episode from a Podcast? If so, I don't think any podcast app provides that, maybe some websites offer that though.
Todos os Podcasts em francês que eu escuto são do app Podcast Addict, mas basicamente qualquer um que esteja hospedado online pode ser baixado por uma ferramenta de Streaming, desde que você tenha o link rss dele. Eu escuto o Aujourd'hui l'histoire e outros da Radio-Canada pelo site, também. Recomendo :)
You're not showing up on podcast addict yet. I had to manually add your rss feed.
I guess it might just be that you're a new cast and not made it in to their database yet. But I figured I'd give you a heads up in case you need to do something as a content creator to improve your visibility.
Podcast Addict per me è perfetta, dalle un'occhiata, è gratuita: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en
As an android user myself I'd recommend Podcast Addict it can skip silence too and has a good dark interface.
Also why would you keep the grid layout on android? you have all the freedom you want!
non fiction and fiction podcasts - free weekly on demand audio shows
app wise: for android podcast addict, for iOS overcast. if i was looking for a non mobile solution i'd use inoreader i guess.
I think I just figured out a solution that might work for me. I saw a couple suggestions for TheHockeyGuy on YouTube, but I was hoping to have a podcast that would automatically download to my phone overnight via PodcastAddict. That said, I just discovered the website/service Podsync which advertises the ability to turn a YouTube channel or playlist into a podcast feed. It can even be just audio if you login via Patreon and give them some money.
So I'll give that a go and hopefully it works as well as it sounds. If it does, there are probably more YouTube channels I wouldn't mind having available as podcasts.
Have you tried Podcast Addict
You've got to try Podcast Addict. It is great for Podcasts and Audiobooks. + the dev is a great guy and deserves all the love!
In addition to keeping track of playback position for multiple files at a time, it allows you to create virtual podcasts by specifying a folder (on internal or SD card) and dropping media files into it. Each folder is its own channel, each media file in it their own episode.
Also ich nutze ja PodCast Addict( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict).
Lädt die Folgen automatisch herunter und klappt auch wenn das Display aus ist ;)
You can try Podcast Addict. Its built for Podcasts but it also has an option to organize offline audiobooks.
It just doesnt have a seek bar in AA. I think that media players can't have seek bars in AA cause it might be "distracting" to the driver. Can be wrong doe...
Podcast Addict has all the podcast episodes and you can subscribe to it, although i cant find the aftershow
As people have mentioned, there are a few ways of listening. You can stream them or download them from the RHAP website but I would recommend using a Podcast app to subsribe to RHAP podcast (and other podcasts for that matter) so that new episodes are automatically downloaded and you can keep track of which episodes you have listened to and which not, this is esp useful if you fall behind on them. The one I use on android is Podcast Addict https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bambuna.podcastaddict&hl=en_US (it's free and fantastic). After installing it, you can just search for whichever podcast you want within the app and subscribe to it and listen to it with the app.
>Podcasts, Audio books, RSS news feeds and Radio
For a simpler app there is
Most of the podcasts I listen to are related to business, UX design, or both - mostly business. I found a few initially through Podcast Addict. But many of the others, I just find because I know about the host somewhere else, like an email list or Twitter.

It's a good podcast, loved the Pyramids one they just did. I get it through the app Podcast Addict. My only complaint would be that the audio is sometimes not balanced. One person will be very loud, and you can barely hear another person. Makes adjusting the volume a bit tricky.
If you like podcasts, I would really recommend Podcast Addict. Use out of the box, or you can customize: how many episodes you want to download, when to download, automatic cleanup, download only certain sizes, etc.
Really impressive, and under constant active development.
You can use any podcatcher and download and listen to the podcast that way. On Android I use Podcast Addict and it works great for me, listen to the podcast during commute pretty much every time.
I love the Podcast Addict layout and options. Here's a screenshot of my page (paid version. I believe the free one has a small banner ad) Might be a few suggestions for you there as well.
It has a feature to add podcast episodes that aren't in the free feed. You just need the actual file on your phone somewhere and then tell the app where to look.
edit: included link. and found out it's apparently the #1 Android podcast app, which is probably the reason I originally got it
Do you (or anyone else here) know if Podcast Addict uses the iTunes server, making it part of the Music Freedom benefit?
Spend 40 mins in commute. However, I really enjoy it because I listen to podcasts while driving and it totally make my drive worthwhile.
For anyone who wants to start off, use the PodcastAddict App on PlayStore.
If you have android I recommend Podcast Addict, it lets you subscribe to podcasts and it will automatically download them when you are on Wi-Fi for offline listening.
