Podcasts not going in chronological order

Podcasts not going in chronological order

Podcasts such as “The Adventure Zone” or “The Magnus Archives” have been playing out of chronological order. I have not seen any updates to the dates, and even when I have put them in their own Playlist in the correct order it is starting at episode 12 and then jumping to episode 21 instead of 13.

Hiya Emmad183, so one reason this may happen is that the podcast creators may have uploaded the episodes out of order or may have re-ordered the episodes after the initial upload.

In some cases, Spotify may also display the episodes in a different order due to a glitch or technical issue. However, this is less likely to be the case if the issue persists across multiple devices or platforms.

To ensure that you are listening to the episodes in the correct order, you can try the following steps:

  1. Check if the podcast has a website or social media presence where they may have posted a recommended listening order. You can also check for any episode guides or recaps that may help you follow the story.

  2. If you have identified the correct listening order, create a custom playlist on Spotify with the episodes in the correct order.

  3. Double-check that you have selected the correct playlist and that the shuffle feature is turned off.

Hope to of shed some light on the situation,
