Allow offline playback on WearOS watches/devices
Please make a WearOS app that allows me to pick which podcast episodes I want to download directly to the watch, so I can listen to the episodes without my phone connected (no internet connection).
Love Podcast Addict, been using it for years and I can't imagine switching to something else at this point. But I'd really like a way to listen via headphones paired to my watch, when my phone is not in Bluetooth range. Local/offline playback or even streaming from my phone (e.g. phone on wifi, watch on LTE) would be really great.

Podcast Addict is by far the best Android podcast player, but I'm trying to find a decent player that I can use on my watch when swimming, and the only real option out there is Spotify 🤮
Now we have Wear OS watches with LTE comm and more storage. It should be great to use only my watch to listen podcasts in sync with my phone, including speed of player, order of episodes (with priorities), and so on...
Haven't had a Wear OS based device before but am pretty shocked to see this isn't possible yet.
A sibling app synced with phones giving to you control over playlists and offline/downloaded episodes.
This would be a really great addition, something I have been wanting for years now.
