Comments on Overcast

“This podcast “catcher” app is a daily part of my life and learning. Overcast received a major design overhaul in March of 2022, which led me to reorganize my podcast playlists to take full advantage of the new features.” Bonni Stachowiak, producer and host of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast, USA, 2021

“Despite not having as much time during the pandemic for podcast listening, I still treasure those episodes that I am able to consume. The reason I use Overcast is due to its smart speed function (set how fast you want to listen to particular podcasts and it keeps that setting saved) and the ability to share clips of episodes easily.” Bonni Stachowiak, HE educator, USA, 2021

“I used to listen to podcasts in the car and on planes. Now, I listen during my daily run around the neighborhood.”JD, LearnGeek, Canada, 2020
