    Have two Playbooks and both are giving a cannot connect to the Podcast server error with the built in Podcast App. Any thoughts? Podcasts are one of the things I listen to a lot.

    I don't know of any native app options, but hopefully others can chime in.

    Meanwhile, maybe a sideload is in order?

    This is what I use, though mainly for news/blog feeds, but it does podcasts just fine:

    D7 Reader for Blackberry

    Very fast for an Android sideload, too. Highly recommended for any RSS subscription stuff.

    NOTE: D7 is just a client. You need to sign up for an RSS feed service like Feedly first.

    A couple of other options appear on Goodereader with a search, too:

    AntennaPod available in Blackberry World is a decent podcast app. It's not native though.

    Well, I have downloaded antenna pod and it seems to launch ok. Let me try subscribing to some feeds.

    I realize this is an older thread; however, if you have not already found an alternative for the OEM Podcast app, I suggest these:

    gpodder (may be found in BlackBerry AppWorld)

    iTunes PodCast Player (sideload that I found on GoodEReader)

    I hope this helps.
