This is only possible thanks to the ad banner...
If you don't like the ad banner you have 2 solutions.
- You can replace the ad banners by interstitial ads. Those ads are displayed full screen, but they will only be displayed every couple of hours. To do so, please go into Settings/Ad format and select your preferred format.
- You can buy Podcast Addict donate app. This won't add any extra features to the app, but it will remove the ad banners
