In a world of seemingly endless streaming services, podcasts continue to provide free, unlimited entertainment for all. If you find a podcast that is just too good for yourself, it is inevitable to share it with family and friends, but you may be certain, whether you hear it or not. Left alone is not enough. With audio and video clips you can absorb them.
It is not common for a podcast app to allow users to share audio and video clips. That's why Overcast for iPhone shines through apps like Castbox. When you listen to a podcast in Overcast, you can create a clip of up to 60 seconds for each section you want. It's a cool way to share what you did while commuting, exercising or at home.
Instead of investing the time to write your own tone, why "The Daily" or "Song Exploder" is worth your time, let the podcast speak for you. Note that Overcast supports only audio podcasts. What we mean by "video clips" is to be understood below.
: Make sure "Downloads" are turned on
The UI is not perfect, but Overcast makes editing an episode pretty easy to your liking. First, make sure the episode you want to edit is downloaded to your iPhone. Episodes tuned to Stream will not work with this feature.
To make sure the episode download is playing, tap the "Overcast" logo in the upper left corner and select "New Episodes." Just make sure you have one of the two "Download" options selected here and listen to the podcast as such, either over Wi-Fi or via Wi-Fi or mobile phone.
Step 2: Start editing your clip  Now, find the podcast episode you want to share, tap it in the list, and then select the Share icon. If you only see the share icon, the play button and the info button there, you need to tap the play button before the Share icon is what you want. Without the five icons in this menu, the sharing icon will only open the default activity view and not the desired action sheet.
However, if you tap the Play button, it appears on the screen that is currently playing. You do not have to go back to click the Share button in the list. Instead, just tap the share button (aka Action) in the top right corner. Regardless of whether you have done so in the list view or on the screen being played, the action sheet should appear with some options, with "Share Clip" to type.
If you tap on "Share Clip," an overcast will appear loading the Clip Editor. Directly on the bat you will see the trimmer tool at the top of this page. The leftmost slider lets you choose where to start the clip, and the right slider lets you specify where the clip ends (maximum length is 60 seconds). The large slider lets you control where playback starts when you tap the play button. You can not control anything with the final clip output. You will only find the desired start and stop points in the clip here.  It's a bit flawed at this point – once you've moved the start time, Overcast will not allow you to return all the time. If you want to start your clip at 0:00, you must leave this slider or cancel the clip and start over. To get to your end-time slider, you must manually move the timeline by swiping to the left.
When you have your parameters set, check the options below the playback button. From left to right, you can set your clip to Audio only, Portrait, Landscape, or Square video. In addition, you can add an overcast badge, an Apple Podcast + Overcast badge, or no badge for your final product. Note: If you select "Audio Only", no badges will be displayed even if you select one of the badge options. When finished, tap Next to preview your clip.
