I really appreciate the (per subscription) auto skip settings.
I’ve become quite annoyed with the ever-growing non-content at the beginning & end of many podcasts and this feature REALLY helps with that. Thanks!
Unfortunately some podcasters are on to us and are taking measures to get their non-content into our earballs including:
- varying the length of the start/end non-content
- putting a lot more of their non-content in the middle, including having a brief “cold open” segment that precedes their normal start non-content.
Yes, I know they need to monetize and advertising/sponsor messages are the common way to do that. However, the repetitive nature of it is just so utterly mind-numbing. I’m often occupied with other activities and can’t get to the skip forward controls to take care of the stuff the auto skip doesn’t handle. Wouldn’t it be great if AntennaPod worked with Google Assistant and I could just say “hey google skip forward”. Once can dream.
