I have to totally agree with you. Listening to podcast is the main reason why i bought a 4gb ipod nano.
Okay, maybe I missed the train, but I'm confused. More than once the Buzz crew has lambasted the iPod and said that there are better devices that do the same thing (ex. the Toshiba dealy). This is where I get lost. I bought my iPod for one main reason: listening to podcasts. My old mp3 player didn't save song positions, and didn't have podcast management software. I love how easy it is to use the iPod, and iTunes manages Podcasts in such a great way. It keeps track of which one's I've listened to, automatically downloads new shows, and all I have to do is plug in my iPod and I've got new podcasts. So here's why I'm confused: Why would a podcast promote a device that's not good for listening to podcasts? Am I missing something? Is there a software/hardware packages better than iTunes/iPod for listening and managing podcasts (I listen to about 18 of them)
