So I like to listen to podcasts while at work. Nope, I don't find it distracting if it's specific podcasts. I like the background noise.
BeardedSpice is awesome for wiring up your Mac play/pause controls to things other than iTunes. Like the Pocketcasts web app. Unfortunately it broke recently, but here's the steps to fix.
Extra bonus: it now works in the Pocketcasts Beta 🎉
- Allow BeardedSpice to run JS in Chrome
- Restart BeardedSpice
- Grab the
pocketcasts-plus.bsstrategyfile in this gist
- Open BeardedSpice preferences and import it
- Enjoy your podcasts 🎧
Note: The file in the gist is adapted from this PR - thanks! I hope they merge it at some point.
