Loses track of which podcast episodes I have listened to pretty often and starts them in weird places sometimes. Also, the most annoying part is that it won't find my Bluetooth devices after I've closed the app about 70% of the time and I have to restart my whole phone to get it to connect. It's the only app I have that does this, so I'm not sure what the issue is.

I'm trying to relisten to my podcast, it's getting so irritating. Even if I've listened to the episode all the way through, it still starts the episodes at the last 3 seconds. So instead of being able to work or drive while listening, I have to be constantly vigilant over it. Today, I tried going through a few all to the end, hoping it'd be reset, and then readded to my queue. It started at the last few seconds for 8 episodes before I was able to fix it. I'm close to deleting this app altogether

This app often has glitches where it loses track of what episodes I have already listened to. I will open it and suddenly have months of shows in my queue that I've already finished. Then you have to go mark all of them as played (individually, I might add), and it doesn't always work. You mark one as played and another comes back. It's ridiculous! Google can't get this app to work correctly but you can make phones? Figure it out!
