I would appreciate an option to remove a podcast episode from my "Unplayed" podcasts, without having to mark it as played.
I subscribe to a lot of podcasts, and some of them post episodes more than once a week. Every so often, I just don't want to listen to an episode because I'm not interested or because it's no longer relevant.
I especially would like this option if marking an episode as played affects which podcasts get recommended to me, since the episodes I mark as played without actually listening to are usually from podcasts I listen to the least!
