Stitcher Only Displays Latest Podcast Episode

  • Idea
  • Updated 1 month ago
If I access Stitcher via a web browser, I can listen to the latest and previous episodes of podcasts.

If I access Stitcher via Sonos, only the latest episode is exposed. There doesn't appear to be a way to access older episodes.

Thanks!

I have the same problem. I want to listen to a certain podcast from a few months back, and can only find a way to listen to the most recent version of it. Anyone have any other ideas?

I did find a very rough work around for this. If you have an old podcast you want to listen to, and you can find the URL of the podcast, you can add it to Sonos as a new station, and listen to it that way. You will have to do this for every old podcast you want to listen to, and it won't auto-update, but may work as a work around.

How can one force the Stitcher podcasts to autoupdate on the sons. The iPhone App offers that as an option each time the app is opened.
One podcast i just found by doing a stitcher search on Sonos desktop app was 2 months old, another 2 weeks old.

It would be great to get a list of all available episodes compared to the Sticher app. Otherwise this is kind of a useless feature making only the last episode available. This is against the content on demand approach.

Thinking how people discover Audiocasts (I prefer calling them that, it's the Hoover-Vacuum equivalent, they don't have to be on an iPod!) they find a show they like and often want to go back to subscribe from the beginning, listening to each Audiocast in sequence. You can't do that with Sonos and so the whole idea of offering Audiocasts is, to me anyway, rather useless.

Sure, if I can find the Audiocasts I'm currently up to date with on the Stitcher service and listen to them every week/month/however often they are published then I'll be fine. Miss an episode and I can't appear to catch up through Sonos, at least not very easily. Want to start from the opening episode? That seems impossible.

If you're going to offer Audiocasts then a proper Audiocast (or Podcast) manager is what's required. The minimum functionality that's required here is to episode track and allow people to start from any episode they wish.

I love the Sonos product and also love podcasts, rarely listen to music.  Yes, we need a much better podcast solution please!
