There’s now yet another way to get The Felske Files podcast, and other great Philly sports podcasts, all in one place.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Hopefully, you are a weekly consumer of my Phillies podcast, run through this fine website every week, called The Felske Files. Each week, we break down the latest news and notes regarding the Phils, as well as the hottest topics in baseball.

Most weeks, a Phillies beat writer is generous enough with their time to stop by, and we are blessed to have a mixture of former players, analysts and national writers add their voices and expertise to the mix as well.

If you are a weekly subscriber to the podcast, you have my profound thanks. And now, there is another way to hear The Felske Files, as well as some other fantastic Philadelphia sports podcasts as well.

Introducing the new Liberty Podcasts app, available for free on iOS and Android. From the press release:

Liberty Podcasts, a Philly podcasting network comprised of the seven best local sports podcasts— BGN Radio, Crossing Streams, Sixers Beat, The Stepover Pod, Felske Files, Bar Talk, and Sons of Penn Radio, is proud to announce the launch of its mobile app, available for FREE on iOS and Android. The app removes the friction for Philly sports fans to find great, high-quality podcasts, by putting them all into one easy-to-use app.

At launch, the Liberty Podcasts app will consist of seven popular local podcasts, all with their own passionate followings. BGN Radio, hosted by John Barchard, is the Eagles podcast for all Eagles fans. It amassed a large audience over the last few years and broadcasts some of its episodes live on local radio. This year, BGN Radio will do a weekly show on 94.1 SportsRadio WIP that will also be available as part of the podcast feed. Crossing Steams is CrossingBroad.com’s podcast, hosted by site editor Kyle Scott. Crossing Streams is known for its conversational interviews with guests such as Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil, Sixers head coach Brett Brown, and Villanova head coach Jay Wright, along with agents, directors, comedians and more. Sixers Beat is a Sixers podcast hosted by Philly Mag writer and Sixers guru Derek Bodner. Focusing on smart, intelligent Sixers analysis, Sixers Beat is the podcast for the hardcore Sixers fan to listen to intelligent conversation. The Stepover Pod is co-hosted by CrossingBroad.com’s Jim Adair along with former Sixers digital coordinator and current Complex writer Max Rappaport. It, too, focuses on smart commentary, but also on some of the more frivolous aspects of Sixers fandom and listener interaction. The Felske Files is a Phillies-centric weekly podcast hosted by radio host and baseball writer for SB Nation's "The Good Phight" and numberFire.com, John Stolnis. Every week John talks to Phillies insiders and beat writers for the latest news on the team from the inside. Bar Talk is a craft beer focused podcast hosted by longtime WIP host Glen Macnow and beer critic Don Russell, who wrote as Joe Sixpack in the Daily News for decades. And Sons of Penn Radio is Philly’s premiere hockey podcast. The city’s best, and most opinionated fanalysts, number crunchers, beat writers and hockey personalities discuss, debate and dissect the Flyers.

Listers can download the iOS app in the app store using this link, and in the Google Play store using this link, or by searching for “Liberty Podcasts.”

Here is what the app looks like in the App Store on iTunes. It’s pretty slick.

All you do is select the podcast you want to listen to. All new episodes are uploaded automatically, all in one place.

So if you’re looking for the latest Felske Files podcast, it’s right there. Same with BGN Radio (which I also co-host from time to time), Stepover Pod, Sixers Beat, Crossing Streams, Sons of Penn Radio and Bar Talk.

I hope you’ll check it out.
