Please note: in meantime Google has rolled out changes to their backend which make this tool redundant. Now, Google Podcasts URL’s shared via its Android App are automatically redirected to their web counterpart when run on desktop.
In the sea of podcast apps, I’ve settled for one that’s only available as an Android App.
Since all my music is there, my first option was Spotify, but unfortunately it doesn’t have some of my favorite Podcasts, such as The Joe Rogan Experience or Cyber – Motherboard (Vice) and etc … Pocket Casts seemed to have everything I wanted, but I didn’t want to pay for it, regardless of how little it cost.
So that’s how I ended up with Google Podcasts, which had everything I wanted except the desktop app. Which would normally be a deal breaker, but it wasn’t since there was a hack to get it working on desktop.

I can’t say I’ve been using Vim from my early Linux days in 1999. In those days I found Vim to be a bit … overwhelming. Not easy to navigate, or configure, not to mention quitting it. So I just stuck with pico or today’s nano and various other IDE’s (see if you recognize any of maintainers names).
However, once I did discover everything Vim was capable of, from that day onwards Vim has been my default editor. Hence, for last decade my Vim configuration has only been growing which I would copy over on a new workstations as part of my dotfile backups.
I wanted to stop process of deploying my Vim configuration by simply copying over configuration. Also since configuring Vim to this day can still be cumbersome and is prone to errors. I’ve decided to create an installer which will seamlessly setup Vim with configuration I need for my workload.
