We love podcasts. OK, that's also because we do podcasts, but we also love podcasts in general. And while there are many, many great podcatchers out there, Pocket Casts has repeatedly been the one we turn to the most.

And it's not just because it's developed by a merry bunch of awesome Aussies. It's not because it has some of the best changlogs in the history of logs that changed. Nay, it's because Pocket Casts consistently is just about the best way to download and consume all kinds of podcasts. Be they video or audio, you get a great user interface that's easy to use. You get great recommendations for new shows to listen to. And if you use Pocket Casts' sync service, all of your subscriptions carry over to any other device. (We'd really love to see some Google single-sign-in love there, though.)

But the bottom line is this: If you're in need of a podcatcher or something new to listen to, Pocket Casts has you covered.
