Podcasts include 3 options for filtering: Conversational, Recent and Popular.
Conversational is the default. It is sorted by most recently added parent Synths (not threaded) at the top. Threads are compressed within the parent Synths that initiated the conversation, and playback is designed in order of threads, for the listeners to follow how the conversation progressed.
Recent sorting shows most recent Synth at the top, regardless of threaded or not. This sorting mode does not keep the structure of threads (conversations), and is only focused on featuring the most recently added content.
Popular sorting shows Synths with most views and likes in descending order.
All can be played back-to-back once sorted.
