Answer: Podocarpus prefers growing in light, slightly dry soils and will develop chlorosis where soil is alkaline or heavy and damp. I suspect that the planters have held too much water during the rainy spring and the result is a yellowing of the foliage. Although you can't control the rain, you can make sure the containers drain quickly, and you can fertilize with an acid-based fertilizer. Iron will help the foliage green up - use in amounts as listed on the label. Best wishes with your podocarpus!
