Podcast turns silent after ad at end of episode

Podcast turns silent after ad at end of episode

When I listen to podcasts that have ads popping up before/during/after episodes (Distractible podcast is the one I’m having issues with) after the last ad plays and then goes to the next episode, it starts playing but silent. The timer still counts like it’s playing but no sound comes out. Then if I try to pause/play the episode it will jump back to the beginning of the episode and play from there still silent again. I have a video of this but it won’t allow me to attach it?
The only way to get the sound back is to restart the app or skip forward or backward 15 seconds.. which is rather annoying as I listen whilst trying to go to sleep so I have to get up and mess around trying to get it to work again. But then the issue just continues at the beginning of next episode.
