Accessibility Comments: 

Although most of the actual content in this app appears to be accessible, I cannot recommend it to VoiceOver users.

Without visual cues and feedback, the interface is very confusing. This isn't helped by very poorly labelled buttons, which make the app even more difficult to navigate and use.

One of those poorly labelled buttons appears to do nothing when double-tapped. I am guessing that this is the button that marks episodes as viewed. However, with no feedback from VoiceOver on the viewed status of episodes, this feature is unusable.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
