Unfortunately this means that if a podcast that we air doesn’t play in its entirety — for example, if a live programmer needs to pause a long show — then it isn’t updated the next week.
It is a feature to Apple as it reduces bandwidth and Internet usage to people who may in fact not be listening to the podcasts to which they subscribed.
Podcasts for i OS also includes a timer for stopping playback, speed controls, and back and forward skip buttons that jump 15 seconds.

Apple has a Podcasts app for i Phone, i Pad, both Apple TVs, and Car Play, but the experience is subpar on the Mac as it’s buried inside i Tunes. i Tunes lets you ‘love’ what you’re playing with a heart icon so Apple Music can better learn your music tastes and bookmark tracks as favorites. i Tunes also lets you ‘love’ podcast episodes because it’s in the same app, but it’s really only used when creating a smart playlist.
There’s no love option on i OS and I’m guessing a dedicated Podcasts app on the Mac wouldn’t include the option either. Complaints aside, i Tunes is still a half-decent podcast player on the Mac. One benefit of being tied into i Tunes is you can download i Tunes on a Windows PC, sign in with your Apple ID, and your podcasts are all right there and sync like on a Mac.
Stacked spoken word just doesn’t have the same effect.
Obviously the Crossfade Songs option should only apply to songs and it doesn’t, but i Tunes is full of these examples.
Downcast is another podcast player that’s also on most of Apple’s platforms including Car Play and even Apple Watch but not Apple TV yet.
Promote podcast playback on the Mac to a dedicated Podcasts app outside of i Tunes (and someday throw in an Apple Watch app? A popup window will open and will read something like: “i Tunes has stopped updating this podcast because you have not listened to any episodes recently. Yesterday in my WWDC wish list I included a request for pulling Apple’s podcast player out of i Tunes and promoting it to a dedicated app on the Mac just like it is on i OS.Since i Tunes 12, there has been a “feature” that acts as a bug to us.Apple stops updating podcasts if they haven’t been listened to.Before i Tunes, I used Instacast which offered a great experience but ran out of money for development.
