Podcast support for iPod Touch?

Hi BOL people,

OK, I went to the Apple store to see new iPod touch. Love it. Now I realized that you have access to iTunes music store but i couldn't find any links to download podcasts to the iPod Touch. Can you download podcast via iTunes from my PC at least?. This will be a deciding factor for me.
Does anyone knows if the iPod Touch supports podcasts?

Thanks in advance.

As of right now I believe the wifi iTunes Store only supports music downloads, no video or podcasts. You can however, download podcasts (as well as everything else) via iTunes on your pc.

I bought mine last week. I haven't had a chance to play around with it more. I really want to wait until I get a proper case for it. None are available yet. Right now I'm using the pouch that came with my 5.5 Gen iPod.

So what you are saying is that the iPod touch will be able to get Podcast via PC but not WiFi iTunes store. Did you actually try it?
Still I didn't hear that someone that actually did it.

Thanks.

if you do purchase music on the Touch, it will transfer to your computer when you sync it.
