Spotify has been working to strengthen its advertising business and attract new premium users by bringing popular podcasts to the app. It began its podcast push nearly three years ago with the acquisitions of Gimlet Media, Anchor and Parcast, and made significant investments to secure exclusive programming rights for Joe Rogan, Michelle Obama and Prince Harry and Meghan (Duke and Duchess of Sussex).
Unlike music, Spotify allows both free and premium users to download podcasts . However, many users report that "The podcasts I've downloaded won't play offline." "Started using Spotify for podcasts. Downloaded some locally to listen on commute but they stop playing when I don't have a data connection. Music works fine offline."
Doing some research on the Google, it looks like this has been an unaddressed issue going back to the beginning of Spotify offering podcasts. Currently the issue still exists.
While Spotify can't fix this bug, the best option is to download Spotify podcasts to mp3 and them play the podcasts offline with other Android music player.
