I will try this app out, and look into podcasts. I bet I could certainly get into them.

I used to use BeyondPod. It was pretty complex, I thought, but I had it figured out. Then a few months ago they did an upgrade that made it so different that (to me) it became incomprehensible and I gave up on it. I know BeyondPod is popular, but for some reason I just don't get it. Currently I'm using Double Twist but I don't like it, either. I guess I'm just missing something.

To me, a podcast app ought to be simple: (1) download the podcast, (2) play it, (3) delete it. So I don't understand the complexity of BeyondPod and Double Twist. I get the feeling others don't have this problem.

Yeah, I don't need a manager for podcasts, just a player.

Could I just use Double Twist then? If it's my most commonly used music player.

Yes, Double twist will play podcasts.

Can y'all see me just gettin' smarter, and smarter, by the post.

Okay, I went in and there is a whole schwack of pages listed under various categories. Each page has a big list of podcasts. It seems I have to subscribe to each individual page. Is this what I should do? Just being a bit cautious being a podcast newbie.

I imagine a web search would fine a lot more too, eh?

Any podcatcher manages podcast (usually) by having you subscribe to their collection or page. It's just a way to manage the podcasts themselves rather than the RSS feed. Try subscribing to the categories you like. You can always skip through the casts you don't want.

From the ones I do subscribe to on Itunes you just download a single podcast episode, or whatever you want to call it, without subscribing to it? Once subscribed new podcasts download themselves, without user intervention other then launching the app. Are these android apps different?

I have used BeyondPod on my android phone. I paid $6.99 for the unlock key but there a free version with limitations. I listen to several RVing podcasts: the RV navigators, Living the RV Dream, RV Family Travel Atlas and Roadtreking. I love some of the old time radio programs like Gunsmoke (over 500 episodes I think). I'm hooked on The Archers from the BBC radio 4 which is a daily 13 minute soap opera about a fictional English farming community. I also listen to Think with Krys Boyd from KERA, PRI: To the Best of Our Knowledge and the Innovation Hub from PRI.
Happy listening.

How did you transition to the new version of BeyondPod? I found it to be so different from the previous already-hard-to-use version that I couldn't figure it out, and gave up.
