I can't download podcasts anymore to offline mode (it works for songs)

I'm not able to download podcasts anymore. I checked all tipps that I can find, have enough storage, not more than 10.000 songs downloaded, stable WiFi, full battery, latest app version, I signed out and in again, I deinstalled and installed the app again. Nothing works... The strange thing is, that is works to download songs, whenever I choose a podcast to download its getting stuck. I also tried on 2 different iPhone devices (my old and new one) and its the same on both. Any idea what could help?

To download podcasts or shows you need to have the Premium service of Spotify first. If that's the case, then you'd need to go to the preferred podcast or show and tap the 3f6881c9-9d49-4d65-af1b-2b54c4b858ea.png to download.
