Seth Clifford in 2015:
Most shockingly for some nerds, I’m just using the built-in Podcasts app. Why? Because my use case is having a podcast show up, and me listening to it. At regular speed. And having them actually appear on all devices consistently (yes, it’s true) is kind of nice. Now put your eyes back in your sockets. I’m sorry to have done that to you.
This really resonates with me, even though I prefer Airmail to Mail and Bear to Notes. The default podcasting app on the iPhone is the best designed podcasting app I’ve ever seen and it just works. Why use anything else?
