    So over the last couple of months I've been using Overcast to listen to Podcasts as a recommendation from a friend, but I still really like the Podcast app.

    I listen to a Disney podcast called WDWRadio. Its being going for a number of years. Now in OverCast I've listened to as far back at 2011 -- some of these are actually interviews so they don't really "age".

    HOWEVER, in iTunes and on the iOS App it doesn't go as far back as that: see the website mt=2

    How can Overcast have access to all the older ones going back to 2007? I thought they pulled the same information.

    Thanks for any help.

    I have also switched over to Overcast (and I am so glad I did, wish it were sooner) and have noticed that the backlog of entries seems more complete... I am not sure why at all. It might have to do with how it was syndicated and just an error on iTunes end when pulling from the feed. Either way, I think Overcast is a much more pleasurable way to listen to the podcasts.

    I prefer Pocket Casts. It is multi platform, has a web interface also, and it sync and plays great on all my devices.
