Since COVID, like others I am working from home and enjoy Podcasts. I listened to them on Apple Podcast App, but all of my shows where going to Spotify. There are a few options from Apple Podcast App that made it easier to listen and make it easier to navigate through your Podcasts while working.
Easy-User Friendly home page that lists your library (U have that)
A button to select ALL of your episodes for that Podcast has played. I know you have a sort by, but it takes time to figure what date you left off.
If a NEW episode is there, highlight it or put NEW beside it. Would help tremendously. Still trying to make it my own.
Last, I would not mind having a premium for just Podcasts. Just saying…
