Do all podcast apps carry the same content?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if the default Podcasts app that comes on iPhones carries the same podcasts as apps like Overcast, Downcast, Stitcher, etc... I've done some tests on my own, but am not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if the app I use isn't finding everything.

 

I've tried to add some podcasts by URL to Overcast and not had success.

 

Thanks so much for any help!

I'm still figuring a lot of this guff out myself but I believe apps like Overcast & Downcast are aggregators pulling from services like Apple Podcasts and Stitcher. When I started my podcast I had to submit my feed to both Apple podcasts and Stitcher separately. It looks like Overcast has my podcast on it, but I'm not sure whether its pulling that feed from Apple or Stitcher.

 

tl;dr

Yes it may differ between apps. Its safe to assume most podcasts exist through apple podcasts though
