Another glorious update has been applied to the random podcast player!

-- add startup overlay, to force click "Tap to start" √
---- then autoplay √
-- make podcast title better clickable √
-- remove protips √
-- make second call to retrieve RSS feed link of the feed itself √
--- enable rss button √
-- also grab categories if they are not there √
-- add colourz √
-- no javascript, no dice message √

Enjoy the update & notify me of any problems! Thanks @adam @dave @martin

@dave @adam I noticed that the "Business and Investing" podcast came up in the castcoverage a disproportionate amount of times. So I clicked to go to their page, and it seems like they list the same episode a gazillion times on

This might cause the podcast to be inside the podcastindex a LOT of times as well. Might be worth checking.

Keep up the great work <3

now with..

- language filter
- other small improvements i forgot about
