Podcast interface Update

When I download podcasts they all go into "your episodes" folder. In order to remove them once I listen to them I have to individually click remove from downloads on each which takes two finger taps. There should be a way to select many at a time. But that's not the worst of it. The worst part is that the episode remains in "your episodes" and you also have to remove from playlist by tapping on the check mark which brings your to another screen which you have to click on again. There are 3 finger taps here. After you remove from playlist the whole list needs to load again which can take 3-10 seconds. As you can see it takes about 15 seconds to remove each episode on the phone. I go through about 5-15 episodes a day so it takes a very very long time to update my list so I dont have to sort through tons of episodes.

 

I suggest a fast way to remove bulk episodes or a feature that automatically deletes episodes after you listen to them. The current interface is really an awful clunky slow setup. I'm sure there are easy ways to fix this! Please do.

Would love the ability to select more than one episode to delete at a time
