I'm asking a question similar to but distinct from this one

Is there a Linux player that can resume playback of a podcast episode where it was last left off? This is the default behavior of iTunes for example.

In particular, is there a way to achieve this capability on Banshee or other major Linux podcast clients?

to my knowledge, Amarok should be able to do it. – Sathya May 9 '11 at 5:36
Amarok doesn't appear to do that. I wish it did. – Alan Turing May 9 '11 at 13:22

Miro should do this.

Not only does it do so, but it does so in a very intuitive and user friendly way. Thank you for point me to Miro! – Alan Turing May 11 '11 at 1:31

Panucci advertises this capability. It actually looks like the perfect fit but is not available for Ubuntu as a package yet, so I'll wait.

With Panucci, you can play audio books, podcasts and live concerts. It will automatically resume the playback from the position where you stopped last time. Bookmarks are also supported. The interface has elements big enough to be used with your fingers. If you installed support for screen rotation, Panucci does support portrait mode in addition to landscape mode.
