Samsung Smartwatches can't play podcasts, please fix!

Plan: Premium

Country: US

Device: Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2

Operating System: Tizen

 

My Question or Issue:

 

One of the main reasons why I purchased a Samsung Active Watch 2 is its ability to download and play Spotify playlists, so I was surprised to find that podcasts added to a playlist will not download. 

I have no idea why. I can see the podcast within my playlist but it's grayed out. 

Please fix this! Listening to podcasts in the main way I work out, and I'd love to be able to leave my phone at home. 
Maybe I'm ignorant but this seems like it should be an easy fix.

Totally agree. A huge problem for me as well. The main reason I bought the Active 2 LTE watch was to listen to podcasts streaming and now I see it's impossible. Please Please Please fix this ASAP.
