Skip podcast track in playlist

Skip podcast track in playlist

My Question or Issue

I have several playlists in which I also included podcast tracks alongside songs (e.g. for meditation). Often they have a lot of talking at the end which I want to skip to proceed to the next track of the playlist. For that I use the control buttons of my earbuds. But, in contrast to songs, podcasts can only be skipped or fast forwarded with an interval of 15 seconds. Is there a solution to this without turning on the phone to select the next track? When I am meditating I am quite absorbed and just want to use the control buttons of my earbuds.
