Add "Mark Newer Episodes as Played" above the choice "Mark Older Episodes as Played"
Along with the existing choice of "Mark Older Episodes as Played" when clearing out a list of podcasts, could you add the choice "Mark Newer Episodes as Played". Upon adding a new podcast, there are some newer eps on the subject I may not be interested in, and it would be nice to clear them out with such an option. Another option would be a "Hold/Unhold" toggle on a single episode, so when a choice to Mark a newer/older ep as played, it would skip over anything marked by the user as "hold". There could also be an option to "unhold all", to clear all the holds.
Here is why...I've added new podcasts with hundreds of episodes, and then like to whittle down the list based on the podcast description...some I want to listen to (hold), some I want to mark as played. This is a chore reading the descriptions of each one...options such as the one above would allow a quicker edit of the long list.
