  • Earphones for swimming
    I download my podcast from I just make sure to bring them into itunes to get them ordered correctly before putting them on my Shokz. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • is there a way to reverse the order of the episodes?
    Not on acast (like here: but if you use a podcast app / website (like spotify,, or google podcasts) you can sort oldest to newest, whether you're on phone or browser. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • renewing?
    I have only been experimenting with because there is only one macOS/iOS app which synchs playlists; but it doesn't synch their order. PlayerFM does that. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • Anyone else having problems with the podcast today?
    I use and it can't load them either. This happens periodically. It takes a few hours for it to start working. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • The "get into teaching" ads
    If you listen on a non-spotify podcatcher (I use mostly but pocketcasts is also popular) you can set the time of the skip-ahead and skip-back buttons, which I can use the seek buttons in my car via bluetooth to control, so at least you could skip through them that way. Not sure if spotify has that option. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Stitcher Alternatives?
    I use for my cell and desktop (webapp) support. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Podcasts platform to sync on Android and Web or Windows sync? though if you like it enough I would shill out the 11 bucks a year. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Am I the only one that gets frustrated with the Pocket Casts search bar? It is impossible to find a specific podcast, forget about specific episodes. Is there a better way to search that I'm not aware of? I love the app though. Pic for attention.
    Been using for years and no complaints at all, does all of this easy if anyone fancies a switch. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • Anyone else having issues with Sportsnets Jays podcasts?
    I listen to Blair & Barker and At the Letters religiously, or I have for years until this year when all of a sudden those two casts will not play, are 'unavailable' even though Im subscribed to both, via where all my other podcasts play, no problems. - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • How to export your subscriptions from PlayerFM
    Https:// But it doesn't give you all your subscriptions. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Stitcher equivalent
    I use then when they get uploaded in reverse order you can tag each one with a left swipe to play in that order. So I just left swipe it in reverse and they play in the right order. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Does My Audio Drama Need A Website?
    A bit of a cottage industry springs up around your show in Google as soon as it starts being distributed - from podparadise to chartable to to listener-generated stuff (Reddit threads, tumblr art, pinterest). None of this stuff is bad for your show, but it's better if they're clicking through to you directly and immediately as their entry point. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Podcast recommendations?
    I use so all my links go through that. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Podcasts to mp3
    If the podcast is up on Player FM, you can right click/save as the play button and save that episode as an mp3. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Podcasts
    For podcasts I've used and Google Podcasts through the browser. I've found that certain web players will load for one dumbphone but not another, so it's a matter of trial and error. Not quite as easy as an app, but certainly usable in my experience. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Just a friendly reminder: they are never going to change.
    Depending on your specific situation there are podcasts geared toward helping after escaping N parents, or divorcing an N spouse. I have found a lot by searching "narcissistic parent" or "abuse survivors" on, just beware that there are a lot of podcasts, and just wider media within this type of community where "everyone is welcome" that reinforces N parents and abusers, too. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Podcast Player Playing Ads
    I use for years and the ads have been going on for at least 4ish years (when the former president ran in 2016, they had his ads playing in between). You're just probably noticing now. I used to be in advertising, so my tolerance to ads is pretty low (I usually skip them if able to), but I have noticed this for a while now. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Is there a market for podcasts in Tunisia? and my favourite podcasts are from a youtuber called Ali Abdaal he is very inspirational. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Best free website to listen podcasts? lets you create a free account, subscribe to any number of podcasts, and listen to them through their web app. You can also get their mobile app, and sign in to sync your subscriptions. You can also pay a subscription ($40/year) to sync what's played, and get some other features. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
