Podcasts are great, but the ads... meh. I hooked up an esp32 and a little button click-y external board. I first tried making it a BlueTooth HID keyboard sending motion arrows. But screen lock cuts that off. So I made it send commands to skip forward back by 10, 60, and 600 seconds. Using a UDP protocol, which podbrowser.org and my own media player honor.
So when I hear an ad, I can just click to skip forward a minute!
