Podcast thread
Okay you fgts got me hooked. Helps that I'm usually in the truck for at least 2hrs per day.

So far I'm pretty big on bill burrs Monday morning podcast, joe rogan experience, Maddox biggest problem in the universe. Sometimes I dabble in Marc maron depending on the guest. Highlights of the Anthony cumia network.

I listened to all of Gavin McGinnis shows before he moved to cumia network. I tried legion of skanks but I don't get what anyone sees in it.

Gonna try some new ones this week. Doug Stanhope, ari shaffir, and some conspiracy show.

Any suggestions? Favorite episodes? Favorite guests?

Geeno 07-12-2015 11:46 AM

5 hr trips twice a week for the last month. theyve got some good lulz now and then.

plus its all complaining about mostly insignificant problems, a topic dear to my heart

Snowmayne 07-12-2015 06:25 PM

Fighter and the Kid

Its a Bryan Callen (comedian, actor) and Brenan Schaub (mma fighter), who you will catch on Joes podcast all the time, especially on the fight companion episodes.

Geeno 07-17-2015 04:00 AM

that last ep where they were on rogans podcast was dece

i loved the episode of rogans where he had the mma trainer/mind coach guy on there. was just really interesting.

The best part about these is that when they do have a guest theyre just shooting the shit, its not a totally contrived interview that is cleared by PR teams and all that other shit.

I listened to some Hardcore History, it was the Wrath of The Khan series... It was interesting but also kinda boring.

Snowmayne 07-17-2015 05:28 AM

blueprint for Armageddon is probably what Carlin is most noted for.. One could find it boring but if your into War he paints the perfect picture.

If you have the Rogan podcast #651 in your steam with Jordan Gilbert from a professional Counter Strike team its really a cool listen. Goes in depth with all the money being made from streaming and esports in general. Pretty cool.

also number #654 with Rich Vos is probably the most entertaining, laugh out loud podcast I've heard. Vos is an old comedian who grew up smoking abunch of crack in the New York area.. Has some hilariously insane stories of dirty dirty shit.

Geeno 07-17-2015 06:21 AM

did his stories about him and jim norton were out of control. definitely lol'ed at that one

the counter strike kid one was awesome too. blew my mind how much vidya has changed.

Snowmayne 07-17-2015 07:30 AM

i fkin lost it when he was talking about smoking so much crack he though he lost his dick cause it shriveled up so bad

and making all those trips back and fourth to buy alcohol to cook the crack

'oh i run a cleaning company we keep running out of supplies'

shit was hilarious

Mescalito 07-20-2015 03:31 AM

Thanks for the app idea Geeno. Just started driving now so some decent listening (better than radio shite) would be great. I've heard some Joe Rogan from disinfo before so I'll give that a try first. Also just found this list which describes some gooduns.. apparently.

WTF with Marc Maron is good but it kind of depends on the guest sort of like Rogan's show.

My Wife Hates Me with Rich Vos and Bonnie Macfarlane
Monday Monday Podcast Bill Burr does two episodes a week now
Robert Kellly's "You know what dude" although Luis J Gomez is a regular guest
Race Wars
Tuesdays With Stories
Biege Phillips Show
Ari Shaffir's is really good. He's probably my favourite podcasting personality after Bill Burr.

If you're into hip hop culture over all
Chursh for the wild, Tax Season, I'lll name this podcast later.

If you're into video games:
Bombcast, Rebel FM, Player One, Idle Thumns

Pretty good article on current Android Podcast Managers:

The Best Podcast Manager for Android

Thereís no shortage of podcast managers for Android, and a lot of them are really good. We have a lot of favorites, but today we think Pocket Casts is the your option to find, download, and organize podcasts on your Android phone, as well as your other devices.

Pocket Casts
Platform: Android
Price: $3.99


Supports audio and video podcasts

Automatically downloads new episodes on a regular schedule or on-demand

Supports cloud-based syncing of episodes played, downloaded, playback location, and filters, all of which can be synced back to Pocket Casts on the web, or on other Android, iOS, or Windows Phone devices

Can be configured to only download podcasts over Wi-Fi, at night, or when the phone is charging

Supports custom, actionable notifications on multiple devices, including Android Wear, when new episodes are available or have been downloaded and are ready to play

Allows you to control playback from the app, but also from the notifications shade, home screen widget, or even through external devices like headphones with control buttons, Android Wear devices, Pebble smart watches, Bluetooth devices like car head units or headphones, and more

Add your own feeds manually (and privately), import from OPML (or export to OPML), or browse Pocket Castsí massive directory of over 200,000 shows and podcasts to find new ones to subscribe to

Supports manual playlists, so you can build custom playlists of various podcasts (or even episodes of those podcasts) to listen to

Supports custom categories and filters, so you can filter by custom categories, or just by traits like ďall unplayed,Ē ďall unplayed video,Ē ďall video podcasts,Ē and so on

Offers variable speed playback (0.5x to 3x)

Can remove silence from podcasts, so you can save time and listen to the meat without pauses

Features a per-podcast or app-wide volume boost to improve quiet podcasts or podcasts with poor audio

Can toggle video podcasts to audio-only if you just want to listen
Supports casting podcasts to the Google Chromecast

Can play episodes while you download them, or be set to only stream podcasts directly, without downloading anything

Remembers playback position so you can return to where you left off after exiting the app

Has quick-skip buttons to go back 10 seconds or forward 30 seconds with a single tap

Has day/night themes, and a sleep timer so you can fall asleep to a podcast or set auto-cutoff after a given time

Suggests new podcasts based on the ones youíre currently subscribed to, floats trending, popular, and other featured podcasts in case youíd be interested

Supports offline playback, does not need an internet connection

Can be configured to auto-delete played episodes after listening, or set a specific number of episodes to be stored and saved before automatically cleaning up

Can be configured to play custom media, if you drop it in its ďcustom episodesĒ folder

Supports phones and tablets

Supports Tasker integration and custom actions

Where It Excels

Letís get this out of the way - Pocket Casts probably isnít the most feature-packed podcast app available. It is, however, the one with the most features people would probably use most frequently, bundled up in great-looking Material Design that just works really well all around. Perhaps its best features are its cloud syncing and backup of things like your playback location, downloaded episodes, and podcast subscriptions. You donít have to worry that uninstalling the app and reinstalling it, an update gone awry, or getting a new Android phone means you have to set everything up again from scratch. Similarly, because of that cloud-based backup, you can also use Pocket Casts on other devices, like iOS devices, Windows Phone devices, and even a webapp thatís perfect for listening at your computer if you prefer.

Variable playback is an essential feature for a lot of die hard podcast fans, and the fact that Pocket Casts gives you so much control over it is wonderful. Removing silence from podcasts is another great feature, and while in some cases itíll only shave a few seconds off of a show, for others, it can be just the ticket you need to finish a podcast on a flight or during your commute instead of having to pause it and come back later. We should also mention that the way Pocket Casts handles notifications is near masterful, and in many cases I had no reason to actually open the appóI could do everything via Bluetooth or the notifications shade. I imagine if I were using an Android Wear device, itíd be even betteróIíve seen how the podcast art and playback controls look on a Moto 360, and itís enough to make me consider one.

Plus, we have to admit - their patch notes are hilarious, and their user guide is incredibly succinct, helpful, and well put together. Itís worth a look even if you use the app the way itís configured out of the box.

Where It Falls Short

Like we said, Pocket Casts isnít perfect. Itís great, but there are a few notable issues that stand out when you use it. First, Pocket Casts doesnít support private, secure, or authenticated podcast feeds. Thatís a tough one, considering a lot of other podcast apps for Android do. That said, they do note that if you can get a custom URL generated just for you that doesnít need authentication, itíll work, and it wonít be shared when you add it. Even so, we can see how that would be a dealbreaker for manyóespecially people with premium podcasts or people who back podcast creators via crowdfunding and get access to special episodes and feeds.

Similarly, Pocket Castsí cloud sync and cloud updates are both a blessing and a curse. Some users report that other apps update podcasts faster because they donít need to sync playback status and new episode status with the appís own servers firstówhich means a new episode might be released, and it could be a little while before you get a notification that itís ready to download. This complaint has been pretty spotty though, and we didnít see it in our tests, so grain of salt and all that.

If you have a long memory, you might remember when Pocket Casts for Android was a terrible port of its iOS version. It was lacking in features, generally just looked like someone slapped an iOS app onto Android, and didnít mesh well. Of course, thatís all changed now and its come a long long way, but at the same time itís still missing a few features that a lot of people really care aboutóand could be deal breakers for many. If you find yourself scanning the list above and thinking ďbut...what about X?Ē then this app may not be for you. Their developmentówhich is incredibly active, and their support very engaged via email and on social mediaóis focused on keeping the app lean, focused on core features and a ďit just worksĒ kind of experience. Donít expect lots of specific or niche features to pile in anytime soon.

The Competition

DoggCatcher ($2.99) was our previous favorite pick. So what went wrong? Well, nothing reallyówe still think DoggCatcher is incredible. Itís feature packed, and we canít stress that enough. If thereís a specific thing you need to be able to do, DoggCatcher can probably do it, and sing while it does it. Password-protected feeds? Yup. Support for your own RSS feeds and newsreading? Does that too. A super-active user community and a developer that actually gives a damn about the people using the app they put their heart and soul into? Oh yeahódefinitely there. In fact, DoggCatcher, even after all these years, is still damn near perfect, and if your Android phone is the only place you listen to podcasts, or you need a feature not offered by Pocket Casts (or isnít mentioned above), I donít just want to nudge you in that directionóI want to shove you into its arms wholeheartedly.

DoggCatcher is fast, flexible, supports Android devices of pretty much all versions and stripes, has support for phones and tablets, gives you control over when and how your podcasts are downloaded, has its own rich podcast directory, and more. Itís just greatóand while we think that Pocket Casts has kind of caught up and passed it by with its cloud support, cross-platform support, and automatic backup and sync, itís certainly not past by much, especially if you donít care about any of those features.

BeyondPod ($6.99) is has been kicking around for a long time, and does almost everything that DoggCatcher and Pocket Casts does. BeyondPod integrates with Feedly, which is really nice if you want to hang on to older podcasts that have long been removed from the publisherís own feed, can build ďsmart playlistsĒ based on podcasts you actually listen to and only download those regularly, and has configurable skip/replay buttons so you can skip forward or back at your leisure. At the same time, itís more expensive than other podcast apps for pretty much the same feature set, and its interface is pretty spartan (although you donít need a ton of bells and whistles for a podcast app, and after all, it looks and feels a lot like Google Play Music, which is nice). (Free) is an option if youíre just getting into podcasts and want to leave the discovery option to someone else. Similarly, if you just want to find interesting things to listen to, its system of suggesting new podcasts to listen to based on the ones you like, or by category or subject, is pretty solid. It also stores your subscriptions, lets you import and export OPML, remembers where you left off when you pause or stop episodes, supports Android Wear, Chromecast, and other devices, and automatically cleans up your subscriptions and old episodes to save storage. Itís not as feature rich or packed as some of the others here, but if youíre looking for something a bit more basic without a ton of bells and whistles, and you want something free and ad-free (and, the devs say, itíll stay that way), this is worth checking out. Plus, we covered it when it was in beta!

Podcast Republic (Free) is another free alternative for folks interested a simpler app to listen to their favorite podcasts. It does support syncing across Android devices, as well as automatic download and cleanup of old episodes, and it remembers playback position, streaming as well as downloading, and custom playlists you can build for new episodes or specific categories or types of podcasts. That said, itís straight forward and the price is right if you donít care for things like custom categories or granular controls over your feeds, importing and exporting, and other subscriptions. Itís a little feature bare and a touch buggy (no more than anything else I suppose), but the dev is really passionate and on top of it, so we definitely support that.

Podcast Addict (Free, $2.99 to remove ads) takes the freemium approach, which might be better for a number of people, and has a few interesting features that other apps donít haveónamely the ability to organize YouTube channels along with the rest of your podcasts, and support for your own RSS feeds. Like the others above, it also has Chromecast support and Android Wear notifications, which are nice. Of course, it also has features like automatic download and cleanup, variable playback speed, OPML import and export, and more. Itís pretty feature rich for a freemium podcast app, which makes it well worth a look if youíre willing to put up with ads. If youíre going to drop the money on it though, well, thatís a tough one since there are other premium podcast apps with more mature interfaces and more useful features that money could go towards. However, like the others here, itís certainly worth a look.

Podkicker (Free) is free, simple, and well...pretty bare bones. If all of these bells and whistles have your head spinning and you want something thatóin spirit anywayóreminds you of the old Google Listen days, where a podcast app just took a feed and played the audio files in that feed, and didnít charge you money to do it, this is the app for you. There are some useful features here though, like per-podcast settings for auto-download and deletion and Chromecast support, but donít expect anything crazy. Itís free, you get what you pay for, and I donít mean that in a bad way.
