PodcastMenu is a simple app which puts Overcast on your Mac’s menu bar so you can listen to your favorite podcasts while you work.

I use Overcast two or three times per day while driving. But I very rarely listened to podcasts while working. PodcastMenu changes that — allowing me to pick up where I’ve left off in Overcast.

Overcast 3

Marco Arment just released version 3 of Overcast, the podcast player I use on my phone every single day. I like this bit in the update:

No closed-source code will be embedded in Overcast anymore, and I won’t use any more third-party analytics services. I’m fairly confident that Apple has my back if a government pressures them to violate their customers’ rights and privacy, but it’s wise to minimize the number of companies that I’m making that assumption about.

Marco has always put his money where his mouth is. This is just another demonstration of that.

Podcasts that I listen to

Nearly a year ago I jotted down some non-tech podcasts that I was enjoying at the time. However, today I was tagged by Joe Casabona (Cassy) to jot down those that I’m listening to currently. Here is that list:

Just like everything else, I shake this list up from time-to-time but you’ll notice a few stay with me. Feel free to send me your suggestions.

These are simply in order as they appear in Overcast. You can read Kyle’s list too.

I tag Matt, Om, Dave, Toni, Geoff, Alex.
