Pocket Casts Import and Export

Given what I wrote about Spotify being a prison for podcasts, it might be helpful to point out that Pocket Casts (acquired last year by NPR et al), my podcast player of choice, supports export and import of podcast subscriptions using the open OPML format.

This isn’t supported by their web player, but both their iOS and Android apps support both exporting your list of podcasts for use elsewhere, and importing a subscription list from elsewhere:

Oliver’s slowly migrating his podcasts, curating as he’s going along to reduce the number, from Spotify to Pocket Casts; it’s nice to know that he’ll be able to get his subscriptions out if he ever wants to.

Here’s my OPML for the podcasts that I subscribe to.
