Periodically, I'll try to listen to a podcast with
Alexa yet always get the same poor result. Until today.
Now, it plays something called "no agenda ep.5" from Apple iTunes. Which is perplexing in a few ways. Firstly, I would expect
Alexa to use
TuneIn, and, secondly, I cannot even figure out what podcast it is playing. Finally, if that command plays podcast x through iTunes, how do I play podcast x1? Here: No Agenda.
Perhaps just use iTunes? Although I prefer the voice interface commands Alexa offers via TuneIn over, for example, AnyPod. I certainly never enabled iTunes, but Amazon just adding that on their own seems par for the course.
Actually, as linked above:
which points to:
it seems to be playing an episode from four years ago!? I didn't even recognize it as the same podcast.
Also, I came across an Alexa skill, "no agenda", which gives the option to listen to the live stream (quite useful) or to play the latest episode. It's sub-par as a podcast player, but is useful if only for the live stream.
