Scrubbing the timeline shows 1) distance from the "session marker", and 2) HUD showing new playback time in the chapter

Visual affordance in the Table of Contents shows where you started this playback session, and tapping on the session marker will snap back to when you first started; all in service of helping you find your place

Play/Pause functionality for the last-played audiobook is preserved even when closing the player, allowing users to navigate to other parts of the app; audio fades in at a rate commensurate to how long you've been away

Cover art skip navigation provides a gross-level affordance suitable for say, the gym or in the car; visual and audio feedback account for eyes-free navigation
