Podcast update interval could be improved + automated

Many podcasts release on a regular schedule. For example, a podcast might always release new episodes only Wednesdays at 11:00am.

For such podcasts, it’s pointless for AntennaPod to check these podasts’ rss feeds hourly (as I have set, due to some of my podcasts having irregular release times).

What I’m proposing is a per-podcast option in AntennaPod in the “Podcast Settings” menu where the user can specify which day of the week/hour new episodes get released for said podcast. This would save bandwidth and battery power. The best part is it could be automated: inside the rss file AntennaPod could check the last ~10 episodes’ <pubDate> tag to automatically determine the podcast’s episode release schedule, if it has one.
