Google podcasts

I read the reviews & every single one was worse 😂

Edit: I tried it but it can't download the podcast episode

True, downloading is only possible on really good wifi connections, super super weird

I have a very fast connection tho 😂

No worries because I settled on Castbox :)

Overcast it my go to for a number of years. Smart Speed (removes pauses), voice boost (normalizes voices to one volume), and variable playback speed have kept me using it for years. All of these features are included in the free app and there’s a affordable subscribe option to support the developer.

I don't think it has android version

I am not aware of one either. Sorry, I didn’t know you were looking for an Android app.

Ahh no worries I found Castbox

Maker of WIP amongst other things.

Another vote for Overcast. It’s a great app and I want to support the developer (Marco Arment) for both pushing the market forward (many podcasting apps seems to copy his features) + fighting for independent podcasting as there’s a lot of Big Money coming to podcasting trying to monopolize the market.

Wow just looked at the clip sharing feature it's amazing. Too bad I have an Android 😂

Pocket Casts. It has the most platforms by far: Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, Web, Alexa, watches, CarPlay, Android Auto...

I think this is the one I used on the Web the other day. It was lovely. First time heard the word "CarPlay" 😂

Podcast Addict is an extremely feature rich app, probably the best on Android, and it's FREE. The only downside for me is that they don't have a web version.

Overcast on iOS, PocketCasts on Android
