This school year, I started listening to Podcasts. Once I found Dan Harris, I didn’t look back.
I found a lot that I really enjoyed. I was listening to more than 20. And I was working on binging them so I could have more space on my phone.
But then my phone got messed up somehow. One day, I woke up and tried to pick up where I left off the night before. However, when I opened up the Apple Podcasts app on my phone, it said something like “the library needs to be rebuilt”. I figured it wasn’t a big deal; why would anything change?
The next thing I knew, all my Podcasts were gone. The app was completely empty. I tried re-downloading them, but it was too hard to remember which episodes I’d already listened to. And even when I did get some of them back somehow, they didn’t stay put for long.
So, as much as I miss them, I’ve completely given up on it. Why bother recovering them if they’re just going to disappear again?
