Watch podcasts do not equal iPhone podcasts

Seeking help to make my Watch and iPhone podcast list align.

My Apple Watch Series 4 shows around 50% more podcasts than my iPhone. The Watch is set to sync two playlists only. In fact - the watch lists podcasts from mid 2019 - none of which are on my iPhone. The iPhone automatically deletes podcasts after being played.

Thank you!

Fixed the issue.

Deleted the Podcasts app on the iPhone like an animal. The equivalent of nuke-and-pave.

I tried numerous other steps but each one did not truly clean whatever cruft existed.
