Apple Podcasts archives

Some people call it Apple Podcasts. Some people call it iTunes. It’s all the same to me; nomenclature isn’t what I’m after here.

I love podcasts. I listen to a lot of them – maybe too many, they take up most of the storage on my phone at the moment. I’m interested in all of them though, and I try to listen to every episode. Except when I can’t.

“When I can’t” is the problem. I don’t know why, but sometimes the different podcasts randomly delete episodes from their feeds. Sometimes they delete downloaded episodes as well, instead of just removing the downloads from my phone to free up space.

It’s all good if I can access the episodes I haven’t listened to elsewhere. Sometimes, however, that’s impossible. I recently had to delete a podcast because I couldn’t find the older episodes.

Maybe I’m just too anal that I want to listen to all the episodes, no matter how old they are. But my question is this: why can’t all the podcast episodes be accessible from Apple? Is there a reason they randomly disappear? It’s not fair, if you ask me. If not Apple, they should at least be accessible in one other place.
