Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.
Could you let us know if this is happening across devices or only on a specific one?
On another note, it's well worth running a clean reinstall of the app to get rid of any cached files that might be causing trouble. This one is more thorough than the usual one.
Lastly, we'd like to know if this happens with other podcasts as well.
We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
