[Connect] Podcasts on Spotify Connect

I love that I have the ability to listen to podcasts on my phone and laptop. However, I use Spotify Connect on my Firestick often and in order to listen to a podcast (or one of my playlists.. but that's another post) I have to play it on my phone or laptop and connect to my firestick. I wish we had the ability to just find and play podcasts on the Firestick to begin with!

 I’m not sure that I understand why podcasts are not supported with Spotify connect. This isn’t just a discussion around Yamaha receivers but any device that supports Spotify connect. Is this an issue around legal or rights? It doesn’t quite make sense if I’m able to play music, legally, on my own home stereo system, why would I not be able to play podcasts. A workaround is to just stream over airplay. But it’s just annoying to always use airplay to play podcasts but  Spotify connect for music. So there is a workaround but it’s super annoying. Would be great if Spotify could fix this. Several similar ideas have been posted and if you just search for the words “Spotify connect podcast” you’ll find parallels and similarities.
