allow to disable persistent notificatios and info icon
Are you talking about the player notification while you are listening to a podcast ? Id so it cannot be hidden, because of the nature of the service created for playback. If a service is created with a high priority, its notification cannot be hidden

You can already hide every notifications. Just go into Settings > Notifications.
