Marking episodes as done too oeften

Hey everyone- long time user, first time poster. I've been changing the way I handle podcasts now, and don't want so many episodes on my device at once, and it's raised a couple of questions. Otherwise I've been happily plugging along for more than a decade, so good work.

1. Can someone help me understand why, when I subscribe to a new podcast, all the episodes except the most recent are marked as done?
2. And why, when I use the "keep latest X" storage management method, do all the older episodes get marked as done?

In both cases, I haven't listened to them. Shouldn't they still be new? Is there a way to change this behavior? For 1, it's not a big deal - I just have to remember to go mark all as new as the first thing I do. For 2, though, I only want to keep maybe 5 episodes, but if I use those up, I'd like to then head into the older episodes.

Any thoughts?

Marking episodes as done

The app is designed to feature & playback the latest published episode first and all previously published episodes marked done (Completed) the user of the app has to manually download older published episodes.

2. And why, when I use the "keep latest X" storage management method, do all the older episodes get marked as done?

This setting is for users of the app who are not interested in previously published episodes or for devices with limited storage capacity.

Keep latest X setting will delete all of the oldest published episodes except for the amount the user has set to keep (X), it's recommended for most users of the app to use the "Episodes that are done" setting.
