If I play ONE podcast, Spotify automatically adds every episode to my queue.

If I click on ANY podcast in the Mac application, Spotify automatically ads every single podcast to my queue, then sets it to autplay. I don't want this.

 

Example. If I click on "Sword and Scale" ep 135, Spotify will add episodes 1-134 to my queue automatically.

 

If I then clear the queue and play episode 130, Spotify then adds episodes 1-130 back into my queue!! I am not adding them, double clicking, nothing. It is doing this because it is what Spotify wants it to do, is it to boost play numbers? Is there an option to turn this off?

Let me add to this:

 

if I repeat the same excercise on the Chrome web player, it also adds all the episodes to a queue...but that queue does not reflect again in the Mac app. It is also a one-way phenominon; the Android app does not produce this behavior.

I sure wish somebody would answer this. I'm about to cancel my subscription, this is such a bad experience. 

And because it's autoplaying whichever episode it decides is next, it's resetting the indicator that I've already listened to a podcast.

 

People talk about this software like it's a game-changer when really it's barely usable in its current form.

I was battling with this, and read your post along the way.

 

I found a way to do it so just thought I'd share...

 

Make sure Autoplay is disabled. Then make sure your whole play queue is empty, and add the single podcast you want to listen to to the queue.

 

It's faffy, but it works.
