Problems playing "News", arbitrary limit, refusal to replay

I have a Google home mini. For almost two years now, part of my morning wakeup routine has been listening to news through the device. But lately, several things seem to have happened...

- There seems to be some kind of arbitrary limit on the number of sources that will actually play. The app does NOT have any warning about this. I found by either shuffling or removing sources, those that are "later" in the queue will actually be played.

- Also, suppose, for certain podcasts considered news-sources, I want to listen to it again? Previously, if I asked that specific source to be played again "There are no new updates, but here is the...". NOW, my device will say "Continuing (insert source here) for (whatever the date is)" However, it will not actually play, either skip if it's in a series of news sources, or I'll just be told "That's all for now"

Did something change? Is there something I am supposed to do?
