This is a plugin developed by Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome, which arose from a need for a better and more feature-rich podcast player.
It has since evolved into a player, episode list player (with great options) and a bunch of other features like social sharing, fast episode play, download etc.
Not only does this plugin come with all the podcast player features you could wish for, it also looks great with a modern flat design and the ability (pro version) to customize to your branding.
If you are a serious podcaster, I would certainly check this one out as it will take your podcast playback to the next level.
