Hey! Wanted to let you everyone that voted for this feature that we started working on this feature. "A way to add a listening status to an episode."
To be honest, we aren't not 100% sure how everyone that voted was thinking this feature would be implement. We have an idea, and made a prototype but would love to show it to you to get your feedback on it. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to see it and get your input on what we build. Thanks!!
