I've been using Pocket Casts and happy with it, their new IOS 7 app looks good. It'd be interesting to see Overcast since most podcast apps are decent.

Thanks. We put a ton of work into Pocket Casts, then Apple dropped iOS 7 at WWDC and we pretty much started again. I'm happy with the outcome overall. :)

Seems cool, but the copy on the site is really poor. It's really defensive, and kinda alienating - "It’ll be released when it’s ready. Maybe later this year." It's hard to put into words, but it makes me feel like I'm intruding.

That's pretty much Marco's style.

Agreed that it's not the best for a landing page, but those that follow him won't care.

No I agree completely, and I'm sure it'll be a decent enough product as he's an extremely good developer. Just have to wait and see.
