    My wife likes to listen to podcasts, and I've set up the automatically download over wifi only setting for her new podcasts as I don't want her wasting data on something that we can do over wifi in the background.

    My question is, if she accidentally starts playing one that hasn't been downloaded and it begins streaming, how do you get it to stop downloading?

    If I pause the podcast, I can continue to see the buffer bar increase so I know it's still downloading.

    If I back out of the play screen, will that kill the download/buffer?

    My second question has to do with the "limit episodes" option. If I select "10 most recent," will that automatically delete anything older than that? Or is delete after being played the only auto delete option?

    Thanks for your help.
