I used BeyondPod until it stopped allowing me to store podcasts on my SD card. Never figured out why, but it seemed fine besides that. I did appreciate BP's extensive storage customization options (how many back-episodes to keep, which podcasts to auto-download on wifi, etc).

I use Podcast Addict on my Android and it's pretty good! It can be a little confusing to add a podcast the first time you do it, but that's the only complaint I have. Other than that it's good to go.

Mine are, but they're all about comedy and D&D.

Tuner seems to have dried up, but I found a cool older, ongoing podcast called Switched on Pop that has the same gimmick of analyzing pop music from a music theory perspective. It's a lot more conversational than Tuner, and pretty approachable for a relative theory novice like myself. Really fun and recommended if you're a nuts-and-bolts music junkie.

You're already listening to Song Exploder, right?

I listen to it sometimes, but my interest rises and falls dramatically based on how much I care about the artist. I really liked the Tuneyards and Bob's Burgers ones.

Okay. I just wanted to let you know about it if you somehow had missed it.

Are Tuner and Switched on Pop more in depth than the soft fart that is Song Exploder?

They're still aimed at a general audience, which is roughly where I sit. But from what I've listened to, they dig a little deeper into musicology than SE does.

Oh that part is fine, my problem is that Song Exploder episodes have about as much actual content in them as a crawdad does meat.

Tuner and SOP are definitely exclusively about breaking down the music, and free of any wishy-washy interviewee anecdotes or long stretches of playing the song with no commentary.
