 Stitcher is telling me the show is no longer available via their service. 

I'm just wondering if this is temporary or permanent?

Thanks.

 I noticed that as well.  I think I remember Mark mentioning in a recent podcast that they weren't thrilled with the advertising on Stitcher.  I can appreciate that.  

That said I will miss the Stitcher availability - especially give how Apple has royally screwed up Podcasts and iTunes on iOS 6.

 

Thanks,

George

If you liked the way podcasts worked in the Music app, this worked for me to get rid of the Podcasts app and get things back to normal:

 I highly recommend the DownCast app for podcast management - it's feature-rich and blows the stock music app (and the Apple Podcasts app) out of the water.

Sorry folks, it is permanent. Stitcher's terms just aren't acceptable - the idea that they can place ANY ad around our content doesn't work for us. Call us old-fashioned, but we absolutely care about what companies might be associated with us. :-)

Gee Mike, and I thought you guys claimed not to be any good at marketing?  Sounds like you "get it" to me!

Darn!  Sticher was how I listened to you cast which as a long time manager love BTW. I guess a plan B is now needed. Can't say I ever noticed any ads on my sticher andriod app

With Stitcher no longer an option (not that it matters, but I agree with the last poster, I have never even heard an ad on Stitcher for Android) what are others using to listen to the podcast on their Android device?

I just started using BeyondPod a week or so ago. It could have a better UI, but it's free. Right now, I'd rate it a "Meh!" But, did I mention it's free?

I believe that it's only free for 7 days. Then it's $7.

Rick,

 

I do recall some sort of vague reference about upgrades. But they'll never take me alive:-) I'm too cheap for that.

I am now trying out KiesCast by Samsung (I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, so it was included, but I think taht you can just get it from the market). So far, it seems to have the functionality that I need and it is free. Will go with that for a few weeks and see how it is.

 To be honest, I hardly notice that there is advertising on Stitcher. I commute 2 hours/day, and my routine is to plug my phone into my car stereo and automatically run through my queue. Since the ads are not audio, I don't even notice them. Manager and Career Tools are 2 of my favorite podcasts, and it makes me seriously consider switching podcast apps, but I'm undecided still, due to the ease of Stitcher.
