Podcast Addict as the name says is for podcast addicts. This app is not for the new users but for power users who know everything about the podcast they are listening to. Unlike other apps on the list, Podcast Addict is not for searching or discovering new podcasts but for following the ones you already like. Many podcasts vanish from platforms like Spotify and Castbox due to the hosting costs that are required by these platforms so many shows find cheaper platforms that are not that well known and share the RSS feed of their podcasts with their users. That’s where the podcast addict app comes in. You can enter the RSS feed of the podcast and it will show up in the app. The UI of the app itself is clean and very old school. It’s a very popular podcast app and has a loyal fan base as well. If you are thinking of having more of a power user experience then this is the app for you.    

 

iTunes

If there is a podcast that is being made or has already been made it will be on iTunes. All podcasters want their content to be listened to by a large audience that iTunes can offer them. iTunes is the youtube of podcasts.
