When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

What's the best way to listen to podcasts? 

The only way I know is to ask: Alexa, play [podcast name] on Tune-In radio.

That works for some podcasts.  But it doesn't find some. 

And it also doesn't have these usability features:

- it can't skip forward or backward by some amount of seconds.
- it can't remember where I left off.  For example I start a podcast, listen to 15 minutes of it, stop it.  Then the next day I want to resume where I left off. 

Also as mentioned it doesn't find a lot of the podcasts that I have subscribed to with a podcast app on my android phone.  (using Pocket Casts on the phone).

Instead I find that I can pair my phone with the Echo and simply use the Echo as a speaker, and use the phone to play the selected podcasts, but that's not very handy.
