Through Twitter, I was introduced to an amazing project called “gPodder“. It’s a podcast receiver/catcher written in Python utilizing PyGTK (for its GUI). It supports Linux and FreeBSD. The amazing thing about it is, I was looking for a podcast catcher just a few days earlier and I was totally lost. My keywords were just all over the place and I ended up with results that were totally left field. I think the keyword would be “catcher” or “receiver”. I’ve used Amarok and Banshee, but I could never figure out how to sync with my Blackberry.
Well a friend of mine tweeted someone on Twitter about Banshee so I started following the other person. And luckily for me about a day later that guy tweeted about gPodder. I jumped on it and I’ve been happy ever since. Thank you Web 2.0 – you really work!
