Screw you apple, fix this! It's so annoying, I even started thinking about android.

When a company is printing money faster than the U.S. Mint I expect that company to be paying close attention to the bugs reported in their user communities. I'm surprised no one from Apple has chimed in on the thread.
Please fix this Apple!

I'm getting the same. If iTunes U was the last thing I listened to (but had paused), then that's what starts playing automatically after every call ends.
Apple doesn't act on these forums. Please everyone on this thread, submit to: https://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

My 4S just did this. Deleted the Podcast app and hope all will be back to normal. This is a very annoying bug I must say. Glad I could go back.

Same issue. iPhone 5 / iOS6. I am using bluetooth in my car to autoplay and autopause. Hitting the volume button to snooze the alarm in the morning starts playing my paused podcast. The only workaround seems to be manually pausing the podcast instead of letting the bluetooth autopause.

There is no reason this should not have been fixed by now. Other new iOS 6 apps have been updated. Does anyone from Apple read these boards? Do they read the reviews in the App Store? What is Scott Forstall's e-mail address? If enough of us start e-mailing him maybe he'll wake up.

Do you think this kind of thing is a sign that Apple is losing the plot? Or is this comparable to previous issues? I remember when I bought my Power Macintosh 6500 in 1997 and there were some really bad problems with the operating system, etc. etc. That was around the time that Apple almost went out of business. They are clearly not in that boat now, but if we take an objective step back are they slack - or is this just like any number of other issues (people say the first OSX was not too good)?

Wow, at least I'm not the only one, but it doesn't seem to matter.
iPhone4 w/ IOS6.
"Podcasts.app" Another chapter in The Decline and Fall of the Apple Empire

A bit too early to say that! They still have many great products. The corporate changes yesterday are heartening. Looks like they have realised things are not quite as they should be, and probably realised this early enough too. They are hardly floundering operationally. We'll see, but far too early to write the epitaph... Anyway, having removed the podcast app I am fully satisfied again. The Music app does exactly what I want with podcasts and saves me an extra app. Good e.g. of Apple not stopping people going back to something they were happy with - good Apple!!

I have this issue when using the music app as well, I've never used a podcast on mut phone and my music playlist kicks in after every incoming call, ended call, and text message!

That is really strange. Has anyone taken this issue in to an Apple Store/Genius bar? I would be interested to know what they say. They often do manage to fix things that I cannnot fix... (For me this problem was fixed by using the Music App). It sounds like charitmanacho's problem might be something quite particular - seems quite different from the problems others are having...

Just related tweet from Marco Arment, iOS developer and creator of Instapaper:
Whatever part of iOS 6 is responsible for routing audio to accessories is buggy as ****.
It seems it ******* correct. Probably the whole audio system in iOS is broken and it could be hard for developers to fix it.

Agree, the funny thing is it was working completely fine until some designers thought how can we mess around with our customers and there come this bug!
Also, not sure any point of this space here. No one from Apple team is replying or even attempting to help. I struggle to understand why would they release products without testing??
