I listen to podcasts in themed groups. For instance, news, technology, career, leisure, etc.
I really like AntennaPod for its features, UI, and configurability. However, I haven’t found a way to manage different podcast groups in AntennaPod.
As an example I’d like to have a Queue, Subscriptions, and specific settings (default playback speed and sort order, for instance) for news podcasts that are separate from leisure podcasts.
Presently, I use AntennaPod for one group and separate players for other groups. I’d much prefer to use AntennaPod for all of them.
I propose adding the ability to create profiles (or personas, groups, if you prefer one of those labels).
In terms of UI, a “Profile” button could be added to the top of the hamburger menu. A “Profile” screen would allow for managing profiles (adding, renaming, removing). You can look at Brave Browser’s Profiles, as an example.
I really like AntennaPod and would use it for everything podcast-related if I could. I think with profiles would greatly enhance the configurability of AntennaPod.
Note: I believe this is different than just grouping podcasts as mentioned here:
I think adding profiles creates greater flexibility and capability than grouping podcasts and may address several of the use cases of podcast grouping.
