After installing Castanet successfully it requires a just a few more steps to get your site running.
The config file
You will need to add a handful of configuration items to your config.toml file. You can take a look at the example site to see them in action. They are described below:

He lives in Chicago and has an unhealthy obsession with Doctor Who, Firefly, and Game of Thrones. And whiskey."
[params.authors.USERNAME.social] - social networking parameters for the author
This theme is fairly dependent upon a proper BaseURL being set in the config.toml. This has to do with how the feed is generated as well as some of the social metadata (these things cannot be relative URL’s). I’m fully aware that this can cause issues with some build systems, and I’m trying to work on a good solution for this. This must end in a slash. Example: https://www.arresteddevops.com/
I recommend the following permalink settings, although the theme will work just fine without them:
page = "/:filename/"
about = "/:filename/"
episode = "/:filename/"
Every episode requires a page in the content/episode on your site. The command hugo new episode/myepisod.md should populate it properly.
An episode file takes the following structure:
Description = "Bootstrapping alpha seed money scrum project. Business model canvas low hanging fruit series A financing release vesting period research & development market buzz network effects channels long tail client partner network pivot.

If you don’t have guests on your episodes, feel free to ignore this section.
Every guest on your show needs a corresponding page in the content/guest directory of your site. Generally speaking, you should be able to name these however you like, but I have only tested it with the format firstinitiallastname.md, i.e., for “John Doe” the file would be jdoe.md.

The image for the guest. This image must be 500 px x 500 px. You can either enter a value relative to your BaseURL, or a fully qualified URL. If you want to use the default, set this to "". Optional. If left blank, or not existent, a default image will be provided. You can replace this default image by putting a new 500 px x 500 px PNG image at /static/img/guest/default-guest.png in your site (not in the theme!). Please ensure that this path does NOT start with /
The guest’s website. Be use to includ http(s) at the beginning.
