How do I stop my music or podcasts from automatically stopping?

I will play music or podcasts and after 3 minutes of my phone being locked, it will stop. It has just been paused, but I have to unlock it and play again. Help! 

Are you using headphones while listening? I'm guessing that that is culprit. Try using different headphones or listen to music/podcast using the phone's speakers only. Observe if it still automatically stops.
