So I have this podcast, and listeners told me recent episodes weren't playing correctly. As far as I know the only users with problems are on iOS and use the default podcasts app. They say the audio repeats itself, like starting over in the middle of playback, and not skipping ahead correctly.

I don't have an iOS device, but on Windows and android the mp3s play fine. So basically, I'm wondering whether I'm doing something wrong when encoding the mp3, or if it's iOS / the podcasts app.

I encode my mp3s with audacity. Constant bitrate mode, 128 kbps, 44100 hz, joint stereo.
