Podcasts I Keep An Ear On

Last Updated : 2018-08-30

I used Castro for listening but keep it all synched with Apple’s Podcast App in case the Apple App gets better. Pulling the OPML out is very easy and then I edit using search and replace to get to a simple Markup page using ‘Text Edit’, which I then copy and paste into Ulysses, which drives the content on this site. (I know there HAS to be a better way … right? I wonder why blottings just support OPML natively?)

Needless to say I do not listen to them all. That is why I like Castro, because it allows me to curate what I actually listen to, rather than felling I am always ‘behind’.

Also - still outstanding - I need to subscribe to my fellow micro blogger podcasts - which are being indexed on Microcast Club.

Would love to get more recommendations, so if you have a favorite Podcast - do let me know through MicroBlog Here @johnphilpin  or ‘john @ philpin dot com’. Likewise if you find any broken links below, I always appreciate the heads up.
