    "Spoken Stories"

    Podcasts have changed the way we listen to radio. Thanks to them, today access to radio is more democratic, the range of available options is almost unlimited and, more importantly, it's on demand. You can listen to whatever you, whenever you want and wherever you are.

    Well, the latter is in part thanks to mobile apps like Overcast. It provides a huge catalogue of podcasts, organized into categories (tech, comedy, pop culture, philosphy, movies & TV, and many more) and constantly up-to-date. You can easily subscribe to any of them, create playlists and download them for offline listening.

    Overcast's interface is user-friendly and runs smoothly. Its minimalism is actually one of its strongest point: it makes it straightforward. Either if you are a podcast-junkie or a newbee, Overcast is one of the best podcasts apps you can download so far.
