Podcasts seem stuck on repeat

If I play a podcast it appears to auto repeat, and I can’t find a way of switching it off.

e.g. if there is only 1 podcast with a particular title, after playing it will repeat.

If there are a number of podcasts with a particular title, after playing the last podcast it will return to the first and keep playing.

This is different behaviour from earlier players, and most annoying as oftern want to play a podcast as I go to sleep and don’t want to player to use up its battery running all night.

(yes I know there is a “sleep” option on the player, but that is an overcomlicated way of dealing with it, all I want is to play the podcast, and then the device goes to sleep at end of podcast after a few minutes of non-activity)
