Google Podcasts finally starts rolling out Cast support

The app, somewhat absurdly, launched without proper Android Auto or <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/Chromecast/comments/8v1snq/google_podcast_app_doesnt_have_cast_option/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Cast support</a> — and offered little else to recommend it, including no option for creating podcast playlists.
