Area of widget should simply open AntennaPod

I use the widget on my home screen and would like to be able to tap a certain area to just open AntennaPod, not open to the now playing episode. It could be the left of the widget while the right, where the play/pause control is, could open to the playing episode. It could be any area as far as I’m concerned as long as I have a way to open the app and not only what’s currently playing.

There’s widgets like that for many media apps I use so it would be great if my most used app AntennaPod had the widget work like that.
