    Glad Pocketcasts makes the list at least. I’m a massive fan.I think they lost a lot of users through some recent design changes, but I think it’s been net-positive.

    A lot of players have features that speed up podcasts without affecting the pitch. Pocketcasts seems to have a unique one that also deletes silences. I also love that it syncs my progress and queue between my phone and desktop computers, home & work.

    One of the modern updates removed the ability to play “offline” podcasts (mp3s saved to your device), but they recently made a change that lets you upload your episodes not on an RSS feed which is fantastic when I’m catching up on podcast archives.
