    So I have an Apple Watch and I want to listen podcasts on it when working out and leave my phone in the car. I know I can load music on it, but haven't been able to find a way to load podcasts. Is this possible? Will pocket cast or any other podcast app come to watch? Or is this a limitation and we have to wait for Apple to make an api? Thanks.

    Your hope should surely lie with 3rd party apps. I know Marco Arment is working on a native watch app for overcast. The more I think about it, it's actually a pretty hard challenge to keep all your podcasts downloaded and synced across both devices all the time.

    i think you are probably aware that with a podcast app like Overcast you can play podcasts on the watch, but you need the phone within range of the watch.

    Looking forward to overcast native app. Simple sync button and ability to sync 1-10 podcasts depending on storage
