    num="x" where x is the number of podcast/post to be displayed 
    cat="x" where x is the service of one (!) of the podcast/post category. Podcasts from this category are then displayed. Leave the field empty to display all podcasts.
    columns = "x" where x is the number of columns to be used. The argument takes values from 1-6. If the field is left blank or the argument is omitted, 4 columns are displayed by default.  Different values will add this value as a custom class to the column.
