[Podcasts] Remember unplayed / downloaded podcast filter when closing and reopening the app

This post was shared earlier but was closed because there weren't enough votes. I'd like to bring this idea back up.

 

Give the option to remember filtering by unplayed on podcasts. So that once the app is closed and reopened later, the podcast doesn’t have to be refiltered by unplayed.

I cannot express how much this is needed.  Does it not seem ridiculous to the developers that a default cannot be set (or isn't already set) to allow users to skip podcast episodes they have already heard? The default should be to now show played episodes (like Overcast and other apps), not to show all and force people to select only "unplayed." Do the Spotify developers even listen to podcasts on Spotify? If they did, I think they'd agree this is absurd.
