Heya, don’t know if this is the best place to post this “feature request” type issue, and apologies if this has already been discussed elsewhere, but I’d really love if there was an option to hide all video instances of the podcast episodes. I’ve always listened to the pods as audio only and expect I will continue to; I use the pods as the way to get my GB dose while away from home or otherwise away from somewhere I’d be watching a video, and I’ve just never been interested in sitting to watch a pod as video content ever. As a long-time (i.e. since the beginning) member but still a casual user — I practically always open to the front page and then just click the recent videos in the drop down tab and browse from there — the flood of podcast video episodes make it frustrating to browse; I wish there was a way to only see those if I were seeking then out specifically and not while generally browsing recent videos (and it seems even worse if I’m browsing premium only vids). Please help make my GB site use enjoyable again!

To me, this was the best layout and design:

I'm not a fan of the current look, but I can't exactly put my finger on why. It feels automated and generic. On the design linked above, each section has a bespoke layout. This helps me separate the content. Content is mostly vertically listed, which makes it easier to read for me personally.
