Mostly love. Sometimes playback gets weird but I love the podcast options available and it's really good at suggesting new ones I'd would enjoy. But occasionally the audio rewinds on it's own or an episode ends abruptly for no reason. It's weird and disconcerting and distracts me from anything else I may be doing since I often use it as background sound.

I used to like this app and used it exclusively to listen to podcast. But in the last couple of months it will very often stop an episode abruptly somewhere in the middle and show a message that says "episode not found." I suspect it's a problem with the app and not the podcast itself because when I go to another podcast app and play that same episode, it plays just fine all the way to the end. EDIT 9/29/22 No change. Many problems. I'm switching every podcast I'm able to Stitcher.

Our tech team is aware of this and found the source of the bug. We will release a new version of the Podbean app to fix it.

Been using this app for 2 years now and never had one issue with it. It has a good variety of the specific topics I'm into (UFO's/paranormal), with more podcasts added frequently. As far as ads go, I just hit the 30 second forward button and bypass them. And when you're working a 12 hr shift daily, a 30-60 second ad every once in awhile isn't going throw my listening experience into a tailspin in order to keep it free. If ads bother you, pay for a subscription that doesn't have them.
