Marco Arment, writing on his weblog:
With today’s 2019.4 update, you can now share audio or video clips, up to a minute each, from any public podcast. Simply tap the share button in the upper-right corner.
You can generate an audio clip, or portrait, landscape, or square video, using your current Overcast theme setting.
I’ve seen a ton of podcast clips in my Twitter timeline as a result of this update and I hope that trend continues. Podcasting is such an incredible medium, but it’s historically been very difficult to share them. Having a tool like this is a big step in the right direction.
And I really appreciate how considerate Marco has been with this feature. None of these clips are being hosted on Overcast’s servers. Instead, the app generates video files that you can share directly. Or, when sharing with a link, the file is still downloaded from the podcast’s server itself and then the web player seeks to the proper starting position. its a pretty slick implementation.
