I have my devotional time since trusting Jesus as my Savior, but struggled understand 2/3 of the scriptures... Old Testament. Then 5 years ago after the death of our child, I let go of trusting God. I could not think clearly through my grief to realize God cared about my reconnecting in trusting Him again..until the beginning of 2020 when a friend in our life group asked me to go through the Bible recap as she did. At first I said “no” because I didn’t see the benefit of reading through the Bible for the sake of reading through the Bible...LOL. I knew I wouldn’t understand anything in the Old Testament. Then I felt God‘s nudging me to look into the Bible recap and I committed in trying it. I have never regret it my choice of trying it out and I’m so grateful to my friend in asking me. I can truly say that I trust God with my whole heart once again. Tara Leigh Cobble has helped me to discover the character of God and that He is where the joy is.
I literally look forward each day to the time of going through the Bible recap with a Tara Leigh Cobble. Thank you for helping to put my focus back on trusting God & looking forward to seeing our son when I enter heaven some day.

I like it like it - UPDATED FOR DEVELOPER

I appreciate sorting the episodes in order by date, I like to go the beginning of where it started. Two annoying things worth mentioning. It stopped automatically playing the next episode ***(I’m listening to Radiolab only right now so I don’t know if it’s other podcasts. I just texted it before replying to you. Finished listening to an episode from last night. Made sure my setting was still to auto play the next one and sure enough, nothing happened)***. I don’t know why. I had the setting to do so, and it was working fine, then it stopped. I checked the settings and it hasn’t changed so not sure what to do. And two....Once I’ve listened to, let’s say 30 episodes (a lot is the point here), since the next episode isn’t playing automatically, I go to the list and have to painfully scroll down until I find the next episode. Ok a third. Commercials are annoying.

Glitchy, difficult to navigate

Glitchy- If I press pause or hit the back button more than once or twice during a podcast, it will stop playing. Won’t go back, won’t go forward, won’t play. I’ve closed and reopened the app. Tried starting a different podcast, then gone back to the one that stopped- no change. The only way it will start again is to close the app for several days (ridiculous) or if I delete and reload the app. Due to this issue I would never use it, but a favorite podcast has bonus content only on Podbean so I listen only to that podcast on the app.
Difficult to navigate- I’ve probably got about 30 podcasts saved on my Podcast app. My list of shows and episodes comes up immediately and is easy to navigate and toggle through. Using Podbean is like “50 First Dates”- I’m greeted with a generic home screen with no mention of my listening history and recommendations that clearly aren’t relevant. I have to search for the ONE show I listen to every. single. time. Once you finally get to the show you want, you have to go into a menu to have your episode list refresh- otherwise you’d never know that another episode had been released. Glitchy, not intuitive, cumbersome.

Thank you for your feedback. We have reported this issue to our tech team and they are looking into it.
If the file of podcast episode is rather big, sometimes it may take a while to load. Currently, we may suggest downloading the episodes, for the downloaded ones should be played in a smoother way.
For convenience, users may
1. Tap the three-dot menu on the top right of the podcast page ➡ choose 'Batch manage' ➡ Download multiple episodes at once.
2. Turn on ‘Delete played episodes’ in Settings.
