[All Platforms][Podcasts] Option to automatically clear old unplayed podcast episodes

I'd like to see a setting, preferably for individual podcasts, to have their old episodes expire and removed from the Episodes tab after a customizable amount of time.

 

I don't always need every unlistened to episode of podcasts listed under the Episodes tab.

 

For instance, if I follow an NPR news podcast, I don't really need old episodes on my list, whether I've listened to them or not, because that information is old. New news has happened. In other cases, there are some podcasts I want to listen to from Episode 1 all the way through, and don't necessarily need newer episodes to linger in my feed for weeks or months until I can get to them.
