My Question or Issue
I am attempting to listen to BBC's Global News Podcast. However, episodes will seemingly randomly not play on my phone (no issue on PC). I will be able to listen to one just fine, and then the next day rolls around and tapping the episode will play it for a split second and then stop, closing the Now Playing tab.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey there folks,
Thanks for all your reports so far.
We've passed this on to the right teams and they are aware of this.
Right now, we're not able to provide an exact timeline for a fix, but we'd recommend always keeping your Spotify app up to date to ensure you're on the latest and best version.
In the meanwhile, if you need a hand with anything else, don't hesitate to start a new thread in our Help Boards and we'll be happy to take a closer look.
Have a nice day!
Start happening the same with me today. I have two different mobiles, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Huawei P20 Pro. Same issue on both phones. Reset phones, deleted and installed Spotify app on both phones. Problem the same. Start listening a podcast this morning, in the evening the same podcast stop working. Don't play, don't download. Thinking twice about keeping premium account. Solve this problem quickly.
Is there any fix for this in the near future? It's been months. I haven't been able to listen to any podcasts from Barstool Sports (Chicks in the office, Hard factor news, etc.) for months. As the guy above me, I'm also thinking twice about keeping Spotify Premium. I've been a subscriber for over 3 years but other platforms are just doing better and Spotify isn't keeping up.... More and more issues every month with no resolutions in sight.
I have been having a similar issue. Some select podcasts have not been able to play on certain devices. I attempted to restart my phone, delete the app and reinstall it, multiple times. Not sure what to do now.
FYI this issue is still around on the Web Client... I cannot go back in the podcast and its hung up on ONLY playing the very last episode... works fine on my phone.
I was also having trouble listening or relistening to podcasts and discovered a fix (using android fyi):
1. select the 3 vertical dots on the top right of the episode
2. select "mark episode as played/listened"*
*my spotify is not in english so not sure the exact phrase
3. select "mark episode unplayed/unlistened"**
**this option appears only after you've completed #2
Worked for me; hope it works for you
I also discover the "mark as play" button.
saved me from having to scroll for days to find my next episode. It was a lot of clicking though! 😂
Same issue for a couple months now and getting worse. Already deleted everything and reinstalled.
Same issue here, I cannot listen to podcast because it just stops and won't start, not on different network, not on different device - just no. Its JANUARY A YEAR LATER, how many months you haven't fixed this?
If anyone is using a VPN turn it off and try listening. I found out that for some reason keeping mine on was causing it to not play some podcasts...
