On Android and iOS, the “Explore” tab opens to a “For you” feed of recommended episodes based on your subscriptions and listening history- similar to Spotify and Apple’s feature. These suggestions are fed through using an algorithm and AI that detects keywords you type in to bring you podcasts of similar genre(s)/hosts/topics.

Now available on as a carousel underneath “Your subscriptions.”

This homepage previously just surfaced top shows in several categories, as well as what’s “Popular & trending.” Each suggested episode card features the podcast name, publisher, title, and description. The play button doubles as the duration count. There are 21 episodes in the carousel that correspond to what appears in the mobile apps.
