    I am a iPhone user now and I am considering an Android Phone. I prefer the more "open" environment. I am a software developer and I want a phone that I can program without purchasing a Apple Computer.

    My most common use of my iPhone is to listen to Podcast. I have 24 different podcast that keep up to date on. Some News, Some Comedy, some Technology. I use itunes to keep up to date and build play list of podcast that I listen to while I commute; So while I commute to work in the morning I listen to CNN News, John Madden, Fox 5 min podcast, and John Davork's 5 minute technology podcast all in a playlist.

    I understand that Android phones do not have a iTunes type app; so what would be the best way for me to mange my podcast?

    There are tons of podcast apps that are good alternatives that have the same content your looking for.
    For example.
    Doggcatcher
    Stitcher Podcast
    Podkast
    beyondpod
    Hapi Podcast
    myPOD Player


    Those are just a few. There are many more. I'm a former Iphone user and just got the EVO a couple of weeks ago and i couldn't be happier. I don't even miss any apps because in my opinion there are alternatives that work better.

    Doggcatcher is one of the best imo.

    I have been using Google Listen, you can setup your feeds via Google.com/reader and I have it set to automatically download updates daily.

    I use google listen as well. It's pretty basic, but works well.

    +1 for doggcatcher. It's a great app. Frequent updates and very customizable.

    In dogcatcher or Google Listen is there a way to make a playlist, or at lease a listening queue?

    Yes, both have a queue. I tried Listen for a while (since it was free), but DoggCatcher is so much more feature rich, I can have it operate the way I like to listen to podcasts.

    There is also the 'Old Time Radio' podcaster, for those who like the old stuff.
