I too use a S5 for podcasts on wifi.If you can get your phone into recovery mode
Volume up-Power-Home and then go down to clear cache partition then clear
it then restart like normal.
This will not change any of your settings on the phone it just dumps all the old files
that are left after updates. For some reason it also has a lot to do with battery problems.
It was the first thing tec told me to do when my battery would draining quickly.
