My Question or Issue:
Hope this isn't a silly question! I can't figure out how to get my Podcasts to "pick-up where I left off" when listening in reverse order in the Spotify APP.
I like to listen to new Podcasts starting with the "Oldest to Newest" so I can listen to all the previous episodes and eventually catch-up to real-time. However I also like to use the app for music.
If I'm listening to a Podcast set as "Oldest to Newest" but then come out of the Podcast and listen to music, when I go back to the Podcast it doesn't have an option to "pick up where I left off" - this only seems to be possible if listening in the order "Newest to Oldest". So the only option is to scroll through all the old episodes I've already listened to to reach the one I was up to previously. This can be really frustrating when you're are listening to a podcast with hundreds of episodes as I am at the moment.
Am I missing something obvious?! (maybe in my settings or is this just an error in the app?! I don't have this kind of issue in my Audible app, I appreciate this is a completely different APP, but I can go in and out of any Audiobook or Podcast and it remembers exactly where I was up to. But in Spotify it only seems to remember when the order is "Newest to Oldest" only. Any help?!

Hey there @Este11,
Thank you for posting in the Community!
Podcasts can be sorted by Date and by Played/Unplayed. So if you have them sorted by oldest to newest and you have listened to all the old episodes, you should see the one you have reached if you turn on the Unplayed filter as well 🙂
Let us know if any questions arise!
