ByteHamster wrote a blog post about supporting newer TLS versions on older Android devices. Read about possible solutions to this for the F-Droid ecosystem here:

@fdroidorg They effectively just put conscrypt in the apk.

@fdroidorg This is a really interesting idea; I had to include Conscrypt in one of my applications and was very annoyed by the increase in application size as well.

@fdroidorg All giant hacks for a problem that shouldn't even exist in the first place... What happened to smartphones, why couldn't they make then more like PC's?

This was really nice to read. I'm one of those on an old version of android and I'd noticed that some of my podcasts are becoming unavailable.
So pleased to hear that the antenna pod person is putting that thought in and fingers crossed a good solution is found.
