Is it possible to add a podcast episiode to a playlist?

It seems like it should be simple enough to do but appears impossible.
I've found nothing online which describes how to do it but also
nothing that says it's not. I've tried on openSUSE and Ubuntu.

Playlists are (in rhythmbox's internals) defined as a set or list of songs
from the library, which means they can't include podcasts.  The exception
here is the play queue, which can include just about anything.

This restriction is mostly intended to exclude items that are only sometimes
available, such as files on media players, or that don't have persistant
locations - IP addresses, port numbers, and media IDs in media sharing
protocols can change without notice.  Podcast episodes don't really have
either of those problems once they've been downloaded, so maybe allowing them
to be added to playlists is reasonable.
