@chris so you need a desktop client? Look at #gpodder https://gpodder.github.io/ and its features (as 2019) https://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/listen-to-podcasts-on-linux-with-gpodder/
I DO NOT use this client, just their sync and backup server, btw it could be what you are looking for
@xosem @AntonioVinas I think podcasts in general could be handled better to entice the #privacy conscious crowd- not sure I like a future where people equate podcasts with Spotify/ Apple etc rather than something as open as it is accessible. I’m an iOS user, so not sure gpodder would work for me. Seems like there is a gap in the market for this! Cheers for the suggestion though!
