Shuffle for specific Podcast
The shuffle mode in the player plays random episodes from the playlist.
Unfortunately, this feature does not cover my use case:
I would like to listen to random episodes of a certain podcast (to fall asleep) without having to empty the playlist first and then manually select episodes and then put them on the playlist.
You don't have to empty your playlist. If you want to listen to a specific podcast instead of the conentn of your playlist, you just need to use the continuous playback mode option. You will find all the details in the app faqs (Settings/FAQs), then you can enable the shuffle mode when listenbing to this podcast and then disable it later when you resume playing from the main playlist. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (Settings/Feedback)

@justin: same here. That doesn't work.

@Justin, this doesn't work for me, it still plays a random episode from the playlist.
You can do this by playing from within the podcast's episode list instead of from the playlist. You can filter the episodes to include in the shuffle first, too.
