What do you use to listen to podcasts?

    Overcast replaced Stitcher, which replaces Podcasts (native app) for me.

    Overall, there's a significant overlap in functionality of most podcast apps, but the 3 big features that put Overcast on top for me are:

    • Voice Boost, which makes soft voices louder so you're not constantly adjusting the volume,
    • Smart Speed, which auto-zooms through dead air on the podcast
    • Seamless sync across devices and web.

    Overcast is $4.99 for aVB & SS, but they're totally worth it if you power-listen to podcasts.
