So, after trying off and on over the course of weeks, I have FINALLY been able to put podcasts back on the SD card.

This was really painful and because my phone has limited storage and the usual pile of Android bloatware, I frequently ran out of room.

Are we sure this is a KitKat problem? None of my other apps have any problem sitting on an SD card and keeping their data with them.

That said, really glad Beyond Pod is back. Tried some other apps during the long dry spell and they were all terrible in uniquely terrible ways.
