Listening to Podcasts on Android
Here's how behind on native apps I was: I was still running Google Listen even after it died last year. (The thing kept working since it was synchronized to Google Reader somehow, but then Google Reader went away, too.)
Anyway, I have finally moved to the current decade (If the Internet works on dog years, a decade is 17 months) and installed AntennaPod. Works for me. Nice clean look with easy-to-hit controls, and starts up quickly.
