Name - GNOME Podcasts
Homepage - https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/podcasts
Why should this be included in the repository? - There is currently two podcast apps in the Solus SC. One is called Vocal, built for Elementary OS, but is distro agnostic. However it has been very buggy since its release and crashes/freezes constantly. There is also gPodder which is a great app, however it only downloads podcasts, it does not have the ability to play podcasts within the app. I propose including GNOME Podcasts into the Solus repos because it allows you to download and play podcasts all in the app, and it works just fine under my testing. GNOME Podcasts is also currently under active development as recently as yesterday.
Is it Open Source - YES
Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software? - More and more people listen to podcasts, roughly 1/3 of Americans listen to podcasts monthly. Over 100 million people listen to podcasts each year in America alone. Now how many of those people are Solus users? I don't know, but I can say those that are Solus users, at least 25% or more of them would listen to podcasts and that is why I would like GNOME Podcasts added to the repos. If I had to pull a number out of my hat, I'd say 100 to 1,000 people might use this app.
