TIL the POD in Podman is the same idea as Pods in Kubernetes. Pods are collections of containers that share resources (i.e. volumes, networks, etc.). Create a pod with the podman pod create --name [pod-name] command. You will need to expose ports and setup other resources with the pod create command.

podman pod create --name my-new-pod --infra --publish 8080:80 --network bridge 

Add a container to a pod with the --pod [pod-name] flag in your run command:

podman run -d --pod my-new-pod --name my-nginx docker.io/library/nginx

Load in a browser and see the default nginx page from your pod!
