Yes, I know "nobody" uses this feature according to your stats, but I want the team to know that I am a living, breathing "nobody" who really appreciated this feature and felt it was a differentiator. I know it's not for most of your audience, and therefore not worth your time in maintaining the code. But I just want you to know that these tough, calculated business decisions affect real people. People who used to drive safer by using their watch to launch or navigate podcasts instead of having to pick up, unlock and manipuate their phone (while maybe driving).

Also, me paying for BeyondPod for a specific set of features that fit my needs only to then have these features unceremoniously removed because of demographics seems kinda not-great from the customer experience POV.

Just sayin'.
