Outcast shows you available podcasts by category, and if you sign in with Twitter, you can also get recommendations from the people you follow.

As you listen to a podcast you can use forward and back controls, send the podcast to other devices via AirPlay (bottom center), and sample the extra features using the buttons in the lower corners.
