As many, many others seem to have said, some podcasts not playing is a massive issue for PC interface. I can listen on phone/tablet with no delay. PC has been sitting on play for F1: Beyond the Grid for 10 minutes, with no activity. If I switch to the phone, it plays instantly. You have said its being looked at, but when?
I have updated, then cleared cache, then reinstalled, all as per your other advice to users, with zero change.
Playlists work fine and play instantly.
Some podcasts work.
