Refresh content from RSS for an entire subscription not just an episode
In some subscriptions, the content for the episode is duplicated over many episodes. I noticed the 'refresh content from RSS' option in an actual episode and it updates the content accordingly. Would be great if this function (if it doesn't already exist) could be done on all episodes as a bulk for the entire subscription.
This means that the podcast owner doesn't follow RSS specs and is first publishing a 'placeholder' with no attached file and then later the episode.
This isn't how this should be done.
You can go into your podcast custom settings and then in the filter section and disable the 'Text' content. That way the app will not show those kinds of episodes anymore until there's an attached file.
This should fix the issue

It'd be extra great if this could happen on a scheduled basis. One podcaster I listen to has a weird setup on their end. When they post a new episode, it needs time to "process". While it's processing, the episode shows up in the app with the RSS icon and it's not able to be downloaded. Once the episode is done processing on the broadcaster's side, it doesn't change the status of the episode in the app. I have to hit the "Refresh content from RSS" for the downloading options to become available. It would be awesome if this could happen on its own.
