Will I never listen to podcasts anymore? No, that’s not the case at all. What I’ve done is to abandon the Apple podcast app. I’ve been a big fan for a very long time. I’ve tried other apps but never thought anything else where good enough.
Until now. The last month I’ve stopped using the Apple podcast app completely. Instead I’ve started listen at podcasts through the Spotify app. I’ve tried it earlier but didn’t get hooked. Now its the only way I could or want to consume podcasts.
What happened? What really happened was Spotifys original content and their podcast Diktatorer which is the Swedish version of the english podcast Dictators. I listen to almost the whole first season of Diktatorer and somewhere along the way I realized how great it is to have podcasts and music in the same app and place on my phone. There is even a decent way to sort out podcast and music even if there possibilities to improve that functionality. As I remember it that funcunallity where that made me leave Spotify earlier when I’ve tried it as a podcast app. However, now it works in a way that I really like.
