Agree with this completely. Additional piece to this would be an alert that says "It appears that your volume is muted. Please turn up your volume to resume playback." Type of thing. Not as a true alert window, but just one of those things at the bottom of the screen.

I completely agree with this. I understand that you can make it so that you can download episodes and they get added to the playlist, but I am like you. I don't always add episodes to my playlist. I will download an episode a lot of times to listen when my playlist is cleared.
Alternatively, maybe add a secondary pop-up to ask whether you want to add the episodes you are downloading to the playlist. This can be toggled in the same location that the current setting is but a new option would be "Downloaded episodes only - pop-up". This way you aren't adding a new button or overloading a menu, but just adding an additional function to the already setup section in the playlist setting menu. :)
