Podcast Client for the Modern Desktop

Automatically create your library by importing existing libraries from iTunes, gPodder, and other podcast clients, or create a new library by adding your own feeds. Plus, should you decide to try something else, you can take all your data with you. Stream episodes without the need for a download, or save them for offline listening or permanent archival. Vocal automatically checks for and downloads new episodes in the background, so your library is always up-to-date. Never worry about old downloads filling up your hard disk! Vocal periodically cleans your library so the freshest content is always available, while also keeping the cruft out.
