Podcasts seem to be making a return as a main source of information gathering in the age of the Internet. Most of the apps on this list are podcast apps that let you download or stream your favorite podcasts. Anchor is a podcast platform that offers unlimited hosting. The app lets you record audio, publish it to various places like iTunes and Google Podcasts, and import audio from other devices to upload. Castbox is one of a few free podcast apps. It boasts a collection of over one million podcasts scrubbed from places like iTunes and others. The app also includes support for 70 languages, language learning podcasts, Chromecast support, Amazon Echo support, and more. It also includes cloud syncing for multiple device support. The free version comes with everything and has no ads.

The day will soon come when most people will listen to podcasts over smart devices: Amazon Echoes, Google Homes, fully connected cars, talking fridges, and so on. And maybe there will come a day, sometime after that, when all you need to do is jam a chip into your eardrum to get an uninterrupted flow of that sweet, sweet Terry Gross content. For now, though, most podcast listening happens on smartphones, which means that most listening is happening on podcast apps. Which raises the question for the newcomer, and perhaps even some veteran listeners: What app should you be using? Hard call, but at this point I recommend the generally well-regarded Pocket Casts for most people: heavy listeners, casual listeners, first timers, students, grandparents, and so on. The app, which comes bundled with your standard iPhone by default, is historically important to the medium, because for most casual listeners with iPhones, it was likely their introduction to the wide universe of podcasts. The user experience is bare-bones and fairly clunky, even when it comes to basic functions like subscribing.
Pocket Casts (Android, iOS)
But there are so many other great options in for podcast apps — for both iOS and Android. Podcast apps that are on both mobile platforms and some that have Mac, Windows, and Chromecast desktop apps. RadioPublic is a beautiful podcast app available on both iOS and Android. Pocket Casts is an awesome app for people who listen to a lot of different podcasts. It has a great UI, light and dark themes, useful search and filtering options, and a lot more. Another useful tool is their sync option that lets you pick up where you left off on another device.

Simply download the episode to your Library. I've listened to ten episodes, after hearing the host Mark interviewed on a distinguished podcast. The products are the "investors toolkit", which to make any sense you then are advised to purchase their "basic" coaching, in which you're told a "few" of the "secrets", but you're still struggling and the answer is to then buy the 'elite coaching'. And even then, to the host and his co-hosts own admittance, they hold back some of the "secrets" that have made them successful.
