I just discovered AntennaPod, a FOSS app to listen to podcasts. It's very nice and works wonderfully (so far). Check it out if you listen to podcasts!
@ob cool, I use it as well on mobile. If you would like to test some FOSS solution for desktop, take a look at @podstation , full disclosure, I wrote it.
I am not 100% proud of what is under the hood, but it does the job.
PS, if gpodder.net was more reliable, I would put the effort to integrate with it and have sync between podStation and AntennaPod.
