If you expand your podcast horizon this summer, you’ll have over a million shows to choose from. Today’s post includes resources to help you cut through the audio clutter and enjoy great listening experiences this summer.

castro. Yes, the default player on your phone is fine. But I think Castro’s design fits better with the way I actually listen to podcasts.

  • Step 1. Start searching for and subscribing to programs that interest you. Those flow to the app’s inbox tab.
  • Step 2. Scroll through episodes that appear on the Inbox tab and tap them to fill your listening queue. It’s similar to the way Netflix and Spotify let you decide what to watch or listen to next.

Castro saves space on your device and reduces data usage. Individual episodes are not automatically downloaded. The app only downloads specific episodes that you tap. If you want, you can set it up to automatically queue each new episode of a show you like.

More about Castro: In front of a deeper dive, see my previous post.

Bonus Feature: Share highlights of an episode you’re listening to as video clips on a social network or via email or message. Here is a clip I posted on Twitter.

Pocket Casts is an excellent option for Android and iOS and works well with CarPlay and Android Auto for listening on summer drives, as well as AirPlay and Chromecast for listening in your living room. It also syncs across multiple devices. Both Castro and Pocket Casts allow you to listen at faster speeds.

Plus: More good android podcast apps.
