How to Create a podcast playlist
1 Get started
The home screen of Overcast displays all your podcast subscriptions. To create a new playlist, tap the icon that’s second from the right at the top of the screen. It looks a bit like a page with a plus in its top-left corner.
2 What’s in a name?
This takes you to the Create Playlist screen. Give your playlist a title, choose how you want episodes to be sorted, then tap the Add Podcasts row to choose which podcasts will be included in your playlist. 3 Add podcasts Scroll through the list and pick podcasts. Or, tap Exclude and select the podcasts you don’t want to make it onto your playlist – this may be quicker if you want to include lots of different podcasts rather than just one or two.
4 Additional episodes
You can add single episodes without adding the associated podcast. Simply tap Additional Episodes and choose which to include. This is useful if an unrelated podcast produces an episode relevant to your playlist.
5 Refine your selection
Your playlist is now populated with your chosen podcasts and episodes; new episodes are added automatically as they are published. You can remove episodes by tapping Excluded Episodes and picking which ones to leave out.
6 Change play order
You can display episodes chronologically, or tap Edit and drag them into your desired play order. To choose shows that should play first, tap Select Priority Podcasts and it will put the most important ones at the top.
