    Google Play will soon be adding a pretty exciting feature! Before long you will be able to subscribe to podcasts through Google Play! This is pretty awesome. My go to podcast app has always been stitcher, but I know I am missing out on so much content because not everyone links their podcasts to stitcher. That is an extra step for creators, and plenty of them just don't do it. Also it seems that these podcasts go live a bit later on stitcher.

    Being able to get podcasts as soon as they release is going to be great. Google will also build in a discoverability feature that suggests podcasts based on what you are doing, how you are feeling, or what you are interested in. If you podcast you can begin uploading your podcasts to the portal now!

    I've been waiting for this, it's an absolute pain to listen the the KISW podcasts... if they work here it's going to make life SO much easier.

    I'm really not that big into podcasts. I have started checking out some of the android site's podcasts though with my Nexus fever. Having them available through Google Play might get me more into checking out others, but I rarely have a long drive and don't really know how/when I might add them into my life more often. Still, having them more readily available without a separate app can't hurt.

    Listening to podcats is like listening to NPR. Ugh. I'd drive off a cliff.

    Maybe they have cool podcasts now but years ago they weren't that exciting.

    I know a guy who strives an hour to work every day & swears by the one(s) he listens to.

    My office commute is 10 minutes when I go in. My non-commute is from bedroom to living room. I think it takes me longer to get to my desk when I work at home actually.

    I do have long trips coming up to visit family 5+hours each way.

    I've got around 15 hrs one way coming up, but I think my wife'd kill me if I play podcasts the whole way, especially ones that are about topics that interest me. Ha

    You could listen to desperate housewives of (Whatever city) for 15 hours. It goes both ways.

    That reminds me of a road trip my EX and I took one year. We couldn't agree on music so we put the Adult XM channel on and we were cracking up for about 4 hours.

    We've got SiriusXM in the car we're taking. We've had great luck finding music we can both enjoy on previous trips. I lucked out there. She's got very similar taste to mine and is open to hearing new things I find.

    I love to listen to podcasts on long family trips, but the wife and kids get bored after about 30 minutes
