Overcast launches clip-sharing to social media
April 29, 2019 · 3.6 minutes to read
Popular podcast app Overcast has launched “clip-sharing”, a way for listeners to share up to 60 seconds of their favourite podcast with other people. The app produces a video or audio file to share; or a link to a website.
Luminary have responded to our many stories about them on Friday, clearly stating they will continue to remove links from shownotes “due to important security concerns”. As we replied on Twitter, show notes are left intact in the majority of podcast apps, including Apple Podcasts. Meanwhile, more podcast publishers have requested their shows be removed from Luminary: Stitcher podcasts have been removed, and Stitcher are asking those podcasts represented by Midroll to consider doing the same, PRX, including Radiotopia, are off, and we have a statement from Lantigua Williams & Co saying similar. We have no plans to remove our podcast.

Overcast developer Marco Arment has been vocal about Luminary; Leon Zandman tweets him: “Somehow funny that in the same week you take part in the fuzz about @hearluminary’s proxying of podcasts, you introduce a feature that enables rehosting of podcast audio (albeit not on your servers) and enables the audio to be played without hitting the original source 😀”. He has a point. Meanwhile, we’re looking forward to this Luminary premium exclusive.
