    Volksempfänger is a Holo-themed podcast app with gpodder.net integration for finding podcasts.

    This app is named after the cheap consumer radio sold during the Third Reich to spread Nazi propaganda. I think it makes sense to at least consider giving it a more neutral name. The project is considering renaming, but hasn’t settled on a new name.

    It’s a beautiful Bakelite radio and I dont see how a radio has anything to do with fascism. I like the historical, non-anglo angle and for most of the users it won’t have any negative connotations. Radio is now a meaningless word and I absolutely despise the word podcast. People who want to rename it just want to bury history or non-English languages.

    Please don’t let the “alpha” status be a blocker, at least i consider it to be more mature than AntennaPod already.

    I tried it last year and it was definitely alpha. Antenna pod , on the other hand has declined IMO and I’ve gone back to using 0.9.6.x, which I find to be very good.

    It has been in very active development as of late. The current release is a few months old, so IMHO waiting for the next release – which seems imminent – would be wise.
