Garmin Fenix 6X
My Question or Issue
I've been enjoying Spotify on my Garmin Watch for a few weeks now, but sadly BBC Podcasts don't appear at all, despite the fact that I follow them on my smartphone.
The issue appears to be limited to the BBC.
Can anyone help with delving a bit deeper into the matter? I'd very much like to listen to the BBC's content via the watch as well.
Thanks for all of the info. We've let our tech team know, and they're investigating this. We don't have an exact timeline for a fix, but we'd recommend keeping an eye out for updates to the app.
We've received reports that Garmin Smartwatch users can't see the BBC podcasts.

I no longer see BBC podcasts. Fenix 5 plus running 8.75 firmware
I also have this issue on Garmin Fenix 5X Plus.
Issue is that podcasts that are issued by the BBC don't seem to sync to the watch, whereas podcasts by any other provider seem to work fine.
I am on the latest firmware as of 4th October 2019
Running the latest firmware 4.10 on a Garmin Fenix 6X.
Would be great if Spotify could push an app update and resolve the issue with BBC podcasts.
Same problem with Norwegian public broadcaster (NRK) podcasts. Reason to believe it's the same issue.
Fenix 5 plus software 9.00 / Spotify 1.3.16
So does this implicitly confirm that the issue is technical and not one to do with copyright.
This would at least be a bit reassuring to all Garmin users.
I also have this issue with the NRK podcasts. Norwegian public broadcaster. I use a Garmin 245 Music, software 4.00, Spotify 1.3.19
Same issue with podcast from NRK (Norwegian Public Broadcaster). All other comes up, but not from NRK.
Asked the publisher NRK on this, and they suspected this might be due to that they use "passthrough" on their podcasts, and do not actually upload it to Spotify. They said they do not think Spotify will do anything to fix this? Is this right?
Garmin Fenix 5. Software Version 10.00. Spotify version 1.3.21
