Podcast apps I use:

My favorite podcast app is Overcast. One of its innovative features called Smart Speed, which cuts out dead air and naturalizes speech when speeding up the audio, is just magical.

I’ve saved an extra 397 hours beyond speed adjustments so far with Smart Speed!

I began using Overcast in 2015 when Apple’s Podcasts app kept crashing, and then one day all of my podcasts disappeared. Ever since then, I’ve been paying the low price for an Overcast Premium account – it’s only $9.99 per year, which gives you the option to disable banner ads (which really aren’t that intrusive) and upload audio.

Being able to upload an audiobook and utilize Overcasts features like Smart Speed is killer!

I still keep Apple’s Podcasts app on hand for discovery and reviews. I also use Castbox for its search feature. Its in-audio search feature is amazing for finding episodes that cover specific topics you’re looking for. 

Podcast in development:

My girlfriend and I are starting up a constructive media endeavor that combines our interests in storytelling and advocating for functional health.

We are currently in the process of developing a serialized podcast. Stay tuned!

Reach out to CK

I could add so much more info, like my thoughts on each podcast I listen to, but that’d be a lot of material to sift through.

I’d rather interact directly about this kind of stuff. Got any questions or recommendations for me? Hit me up on the Twitter!

@cKdisco ☮️ 🥓 ⚽️

I generally check Twitter at least once a day. Most days, it’s 1-2 times per day. Holla @ me with your #PodRoCK questions and recommendations!
