Add a way to clear backlog from New Episodes lists
After I add a new podcast, or they do something that refreshes their feed so all episodes show up as new again, the full backlog of episodes from that podcast shows up on the New Episodes list every time I sync. I currently have 800 episodes from two podcasts that refreshed their feeds.
I couldn't find a way to clear those from New Episodes without swiping through every single one. I don't want to mark them all played because they aren't played. Now every time I sync, they show up again.
You can swipe the New episodes notification away or once the New episodes screen is opened press on the back button to reset it

I don't understand. I want the New Episodes list, so I don't want to swipe it away.
When I'm looking at it and see 800 repeats that reappeared, if i press back, the New Episodes list goes away, but next time I sync podcasts (and it finds any actual new episodes), all those 800 old episodes that I didn't individually open up come back on my New Episodes list.
