Save currently played podcast episode and position within it between app launches

The app has a wonderful set of lectures/interviews that one can download on the iPhone before going for a walk. Unfortunately, unlike built-in Apple Podcasts, the app does not remember what was the episode that was playing when user exited the app, nor the position within that episode. As a workaround, user can always make screenshots of the app before exit, to remember the name and exact position within the listened episode. It would be nice if the app saved this data between launches. Thank you.

Was a 5 star app until a few days ago

I think C-span is trying to force everyone to C-span now. I have rejected that app for a few weeks but starting now it is popping up every few minutes. The C-span radio stream keeps cutting out where you have to restart it every few minutes if it will restart at all. So I gave it and downloaded the C-span Now app thinking that I would be able to listen to the Washington Journal as I have for years now with out an issue and without tying it to cable same as I listen in my car. I use to love this app bu if you need to put a bug in it to force us onto another platform that requires an outside paid subscription why not say that up front. If long time users of the C-span Radio app are going to be cut off from listening just be upfront about it. Don’t annoy us with intermittent cut off. Use yo love the app now I’m just annoyed with it.

The CSPAN Radio app is great if you like political news. It seems they have made it much more stable. It now stays connected much better, even in rural areas.

I was using a different general radio app (on iPhone). But lately that app does not like to stay connected and very often repeats words or phrases. So the C-SPAN radio app is now a better alternative.
