Best Podcast Player

No lagging or missing episodes. If someone finds a podcast with one thousand episode, search the episode in the search field and tap play and subscribe. Stitcher will remember the sequence and start playing the episodes in chronological order.
For premium stuff you have to pay, with all the good work they are doing. But you don’t need to unless you want to, I have been a free subscriber for an year. No problem whatsoever. Even some places better than Apple Podcast.
Thank you Stitcher, keep up the good work.

Infuriating: can't play from old to new

I want to listen to podcasts in the order they were made. I want to hear in-jokes and fun experiences at their inception, before I hear references to them. I want to be able to listen at all to podcasts that tell a story. I want to follow along with the lives of artists as they unfold. I don't want to listen to anything in reverse order. Is that too much to ask?

For stitcher, yes. The only way to play episodes in order is to scroll all the way down to the first episode, pressing 'load more' as you go. I recently found a new podcast that has 900 episodes. It would probably take about 5 minutes to scroll all the way through.

Infuriating design.

My go to podcast app but yet...

Stitcher has been my almost exclusive app for podcast listening since 2015 and 99% of the time I have had no problems with it...

my wish of something I hope to see:
- be able to set a time window when to download podcast (i.e. only between 1am and 4am) - I have had times when the app cues up 5 to 10 episodes to download simultaneously and the result is any other applications on my phone crawl if they need WiFi bandwidth
