I like stitcher, it's been my go-to for podcasts for years and the app is nice. BUT, there is one thing I hate about this app with all of my heart. If you close the app while a podcast is playing, it will keep playing as a notification like some kind of app zombie. I thought turning notifications off might help, but no, it just keeps playing as a phantom app until you reopen it and press the stop button. I just want to be able to disable this feature. Please.

Fun, modern UI. Haven't had any major bugs. Occasional weirdness when reordering the queue. Wish playing an episode did not automatically add other episodes from that show to the queue. I know multi-select is new - hope in the future you can check more than 20 at once. Biggest issue, and it is a big one - lots of shows are just not natively available in the app, and there's no option to add from RSS feed. I'd like to make this my only podcast app, but I can't without RSS support.

Overall love it. Only complaint/feedback is about how shows are saved in your library - as far as I can figure out, they can only be listed with thumbnails without an option to be listed with the full titles instead of thumbnails. This makes it hard to read them unless you memorize what your saved shows' thumbnails look like. But generally think it's a great user friendly app with good content.
