    Great. Love the convenience. Only criticism is you cant start the podcasts partway through. Small bug when you save a podcast to your "my podcast". Keeps saying its downloading when its finished

    Love having this on my phone esp when I don't want to listen to sport on the car radio. The latest version complicated it a bit but I eventually figured out how to exit the app!
