I have been having this problem for months. I updated to 12.5 and thought the problem went away but it persists. Basically it is this. The list view for podcasts randomly comes up as the classic list view. I change it back to the standard list. And it may stay or it may switch back to classic. This Mac is running Yosemite and I think maybe that is the problem. It may also be something that happens when I connect older iPods. I can't identify what is causing this. I can switch it back but I would love for it to stay in the standard list view. Has anybody else seen this problem and do they have a solution.
