I found the little green dot to show New Episodes very useful you can check at a glace what is new. I will go back to using a different provider for podcasts as the new update makes it clunky again. Feels like spotify just went backwards, what on earth was that terrible update?

Hello and thanks for bringing your feedback to the Idea Exchange. We've marked this as a new idea.
Keep in mind that you can find new episodes from Podcasts you follow by going to Your Library > Podcasts > Episodes
