I appreciate the attempt at 'fixing' this annoying problem but turning the cellular data back on is not what I want to do. It comes from the factory with all apps enabled and I went in and turned most off for cellular data. Why does apple have to constantly bombard us with this reminder when it was something that was changed on the user level? WE KNOW we turned it off!

Sorry to vent. I've just been getting sick of this notification lately. There's got to be a way for apple to actually fix this. For now, I'll try sending this stupid message to the notification center instead.

This has been annoying me for years. Problem now solved, I think.
No pop up since I've used these settings, and the podcasts download with wi-fi only:

Settings > Cellular > Podcasts > ON
Settings > Podcasts > Use Cellular Data > ON
Settings > Podcasts > Only Download on Wi-Fi > ON
