I suggest you ...

Assume podcast is finished if played xx% (95? 97?) or y minutes-or-less left

Most podcasts end with "housekeeping" and probably advertisements. When the core content is done, I don't wait for 100% finish.

But if I jump out, the old podcast lingers, keeps using space, and might even be continued after I finish another podcast.

And deleting by holding "jump to next podcast" button doesn't work for me - since I want to actually select the next thing to listen to, not some arbitrary 'next unlistened' one..

        For now you can either long press on the player next button to skip to the next episode while deleting the current one and marking it as played.
        You can also go into the podcast custom settings and enable Skip outro to tell the app to automatically skip the last XX seconds of this podcast

        (to be clear: "assume finished" could be either mark as seen, or fully deleted immediately..)
