While using the Apple Podcast app in the car, I noticed that there is no way to fast-forward using the car controls as the Podcast app skips to the next Podcast rather than fast-forward 30 seconds or so like most other apps.

I assume that this is a poor design choice and Apple will not change this or is there a setting for this somewhere?

It’s the lack of such essential options that drew me away from the default Podcast years and years ago.

Doesn’t answer your question, but I strongly suggest investigating much better alternatives like Overcast (my choice), Downcast (which I used for years before Overcast appeared) or Pocket Casts. All of these are soooo much better than the default, you wouldn’t believe.

RSSRADIO will do the trick when you press >> on a car radio whether on a stick or the radio it self you get to skip what ever time you have entered in the preferences.
