Podcast posters square-shape: reference view fix coming?

Podcast posters are always square. But obviously film/TV posters are always portrait

Is IMDb going to fix the backend so when a poster is added under a Podcast Series or Podcast Episode, they will finally appear correctly in reference view as a square-shape preview box on their title page? 

See the current long-term problem in reference display mode here: [reference view vs. standard view

Podcasts have been able to be added to site for ~16months now (since 21 Oct 2021), so why is it taking so long to fix this issue that makes such visual data on the site look so bad for serious users who often use reference view.

@jimthing No sorry, under the terms under which reference view was created, we do not make changes to this view so there are no plans to address this.

@Col_Needham​ OK. Disappointing, but thanks for advising Col.
