Transferring Outcast podcasts to Apple Watch

I understand that I can now download Outcast (podcast player) to both my iPhone and my Apple Watch and then transfer podcast episodes over to my watch.

I have Outcast showing up on my iPhone and also on my watch. When I download episodes on my phone, that episode shows up on my phone's Outcast app. But when I push play on my watch, the Podcast episode plays on my phone, not my watch.

Can anyone help? I thought that these Outcast podcast episodes were something I would be able to listen to from the speakers on my watch, no bluetooth speaker, iPhone or bluetooth headphones required. Am I wrong? Or just doing something wrong?

Thanks for any and all help.

watchOS 4 right? You have to wait for watchOS 5 to be able to play your podcast on Apple Watch directly. And it will be on Apple Podcasts only AFAIU.
