safari and podcasts

macOS & Mac Apps
I recently played a podcast on my MacBook Pro. Now everytime I open Safari the same podcast plays again. I can not find the controls to stop it. I also changed the web page and re-opened Safari and could not get the podcast to stop? Can anyone help?

Did you try closing the window the podcast is playing in with Command W? Opening apps and always having your last session right there feels different at first, but I've gotten used to it and like the feature. If you don't, you can turn it off in System Preferences. As to podcast controls, there should be a toolbar on the main Safari player page, assuming the podcast didn't play in some on the actual site player. Anyway, interacting with this toolbar should get you a set of controls.
