Judging by the new revelation, the Podcast Episodes have got their landing page.

It seems as though Apple is about to whip out its Ginsu knife and chop iTunes into a bunch of individual bits, right as its TV Plus application heads to Mac systems. The 9to5Mac report clearly states that iTunes will not be completely killed off as the app will continue to exist but its functionality will be reduced heavily. iTunes still remains the only possible way for those who use an iPod to transfer songs.

It was nearly 18 years ago when Apple introduced the world to iTunes - an app/service that was initially meant for iPod users to transfer music on their devices. The web interface also didn't make full show notes or other episode details visible. Books, which already has its own app on macOS, is also potentially getting a similar Marzipan redesign that would bring it more in line with the updated app that Apple released with iOS 12 last fall. Podcasts app would, naturally, be all about podcasts. Controls are pretty simple - just hit "play" - but this means you won't automatically be booted to iTunes to listen. Put simply, breaking up iTunes will present users with a much more intuitive way to access and enjoy their favorite content. Judging exclusively by the design, the leaked Podcasts and Apple TV icons match the iOS ones but offer a more rounded approach. Besides that, the iTunes branding doesn't align with Apple Podcasts on iOS, which is probably how most users listen on their iPhones or iPads. Have you tried them on your Mac?
