If anyone else on a Samsung phone is having the problem of the app stopping whenever another app is running, it seems to be due to some settings in the various game optimization apps. I found a guide on how to shut them off and it solved the problem! Basically, Samsung phones, by default, will shut down apps other than what you're playing in the name of efficiency, even if you're plugged in and the game is running fine.

The interface sucks and the default settings are awful. Why on earth does the default settings add all episodes of every podcast you follow to the default playlist? Why is that playlist setting not under the playlist settings? Better organization and better default settings are needed. I'm looking for something better than podcast addict. This is not it. My search continues. Don't waste your time with this one.

The order of episodes in a playlists depends on the sorting options. If you want to order it manually then you should select Manually option in the Sort menu.

I love this app, but for some reason it will update/download/delete episodes constantly throughout the day, even though I've set it to only do so 1x/day, down to 1x/week. The constant notifications are so irritating I'm actually actively looking for a similar app which doesn't bother me unless I want it to, on my actual preferred schedule. Other than that it's brilliant, fairly intuitive for such a full-featured app, and I especially love being able to set playback speed as surgically as I like!
