Tom has been syncing podcasts to his iPod Touch. But now that he has the SIV, he's been syncing the podcast, but DoubleTwist can't remember the position of the podcast. Leo says that Doubletwist player doesn't remember because it thinks it's a song. Leo recommends DogCatcher for Android, and use DoubleTwist to sync it. In fact, Leo says to subscribe to the podcast through Dogcatcher and it'll get it.
Mark has trouble watching TWiT netcasts on his iPad. He says the video works on his Mac, but not on his iPad. He's attempting to do this all through iTunes. Leo says it could be that there are versions of the video that aren't compatible with iPad.
He might want to try using InstaCast, instead of Apple's app. Mark could also try downloading different qualities to see if that works.
Steve wants an inexpensive MP3 player just for listening to podcasts. Leo recommends the Sandisk Sansa. It's a small, clip-on mp3 that comes in 2, 4, and 8GB options and would be ideal for this. Of course, most people just use iPods and iPhones because it's easier. However, if Steve can sync his podcasts with the computer, this will do just fine.
Jared has a podcast where he wants to review gadgets, but is having difficulty getting review units. Leo says it's very hard starting out to ask providers to give him a product to review. It kind of puts the burden on him to give a favorable review if they give him a product, too.
Dwight is a voiceover artist for a new newsreading app called Umano. He applied, interviewed, was hired and is paid online. He is using the Blue Yeti which is the best mic for his work, but sometimes he gets static feedback in his headphones. Leo says that isn't supposed to happen and there's a short circuit in the mic which is sending voltage into the headphones.
If he's downloaded the shows, they should all be there. If he's talking about undownloaded episodes, TWiT only lists the most recent 10. This is because the RSS text file that iTunes pulls that information from would become unmanageably large. It would take up a considerable amount of bandwidth. Very few podcasts list all of their episodes. The RSS feed is meant to just be the most recent shows. All of TWiT's shows are kept at TWiT.tv.
