Important note for Pocket Casts app users: Unfortunately Pocket Casts android app has a problem with downloading our episodes (to listen to them offline). It seems that while downloading their android app is using a old http client which doesn’t support latest TLS cipher standards we use on server side to host our episodes.
Nevertheless, streaming our episodes (instead of downloading) works in Pocket Casts android app.
See this tutorial: Pocket Casts: Streaming
