2013 was a great year for podcasts. It felt like new shows and apps were springing up every other week which is great if you are a podcast junky like me.
Having tried numerous iOS podcast apps – Instacast, Downcast, Pod Wrangler and Pocket Casts – I’ve settled on a favourite: Castro. Castro has a wonderfully minimal interface, the best scrubber I’ve seen on iOS and the relatively small feature set does exactly what I want (with the exception of continuous play, but that’s coming).
I’m still using Huffduffer to listen to the odd podcast, usually when I don’t want to subscribe to a show.
Here’s a run down of what I’m currently listening to:
99% Invisible is a wonderfully produced podcast on a wide range of design-related topics. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be this one.
The Boagworld Web Design Show is the podcast that got me into podcasts.
Debug, with Guy English and Rene Ritchie, is an interview show focusing on development. I usually have no clue as to what they are talking about as it gets technical at times, but it’s a good listen now and then.
The Infinite Monkey Cage because who doesn’t love a little bit of science and comedy?
The Talk Show: “Sort of like the director’s commentary track for Daring Fireball” sums it up pretty well.
