In the clock app you can a timer with the sound "stop playing".
Right, I use this as well. Simply start your music, podcast, or whatever. Then go into the clock app, set a countdown timer for however long you want it to play, and set the "alarm" to Stop Playing.

No third party app is needed.

The only problem with using the clock timer app is that you have to keep changing the tone if you want to use the timer as a timer and not just to stop playing music

Downcast and Overcast are two podcast apps that have a sleep timer built in
Amazon music app also has a sleep timer.
