Shortcuts/HomePod is killing me!

Okay, as a MPU heavily invested in home automation, Apple Music and podcasts…this is killing me!

Can’t create any shortcuts that involved playing music on HomePod (instead of iPhone) and also cannot create a Siri Shortcut to play a Podcast/Playlist from ‘Overcast’!

Do we know if Marco looks at this forum, could he (or anyone else) comment on if this is likely to a be a quick fix, this is a massive oversight in regards to the HomePod/Home App’s development!
