Re: Castro Questions

I just started using it as well. I’ve only broken the surface. I was able to tell siri to play a certain podcast, and even skip to the next chapter. I didn’t have to do anything regarding short cuts to make this happen. I just followed along with Jonathan on Saturday while listening to the mushroom. I don’t think he went in detail as to how to set up siri short cuts.

There are two podcasts which Jonathan recorded covering the use of Castro.

First, a very recent episode, that being episode 44, demonstrates the newly added Siri capabilities which were recently added to Castro. Please note that this is really a demonstration and not a full tutorial.

Episode 18 is a general demonstration of Castro. I haven't yet heard this episode but I plan to as I recently switched to Castro because of Jonathan's recommendation.

Hey Lynn. Jonathan Mosen did an excellent demo on castro on his Mosen at large podcast a little while ago. I can't recall the episode number. I'll bet if you reached out to him he could answer your questions.

Is there any type of tutorials for this podcatcher?
I was looking at the Siri shortcuts. However, when I would try to install them, I was not allowed to do so. There must be some first step that I’m missing. Thanks.
