You can use the Discover tab for browsing popular shows in different categories or just search for the shows you like by name or URL. When you search a show that interests you, just tap on it to view the show details, and see what their latest episode was and what that episode is about. Castro also describes the oldest episode available, but users could also easily tap on the middle break to see all episodes that are in-between the oldest and latest.

The global users could subscribe to a show as you normally would; there are also many individual options that they could trigger by tapping on individual episodes. The options vary from Play Now, Add to Queue as Next, Add to Queue as Last, or Favorite, which extensively adds favorite show episodes to the inbox automatically.

When global users are playing a podcast, they would view the currently playing episode illustrated by a small icon of the artwork in the bottom right corner, where the playback bar is. By gentle tapping on the icon it permits you to view the show notes, and users could utilize the buttons to pause, rewind, and skip forward. It is possible to access the Share Sheet and effectively share a Castro link to the episode through a myriad of choices.
