I live in an area of California with spotty cell service (there are plenty of us). For a decade, my chosen podcast app has automatically downloaded episodes for me whenever I am at home and I have a good connection, so I can then listen to them anywhere.
I'm not going to lie, I only discovered this because Spotify bought Gimlet, and now because it is "exclusive" I have to manually download episodes of the podcast "Crimetown" if I want to listen to them.
This is a basic feature that has been in all other podcast apps for at least a decade, and you don't have it? Why would you buy a podcast company, just to cut off the listeners?
