Hi there

First question, am I just too stupid or is it really the biggest crap Apple ever made?

Yesterday I downloaded a Podcast that is called 'tech stuff'. Don't ask me how I found it cause that's exactly the problem.
Now I'm sitting here and want to download some more episodes from that podcast to my phone.

But this absolute piece of crap iTunes store navigation makes it just impossible.
This is how I tried to do that:

-Click iTunes
-Go to 'more' and select 'Podcasts'.
-Go to 'Categories' and select 'Technology' (cause that's the category I know the podcast is in)

There we are now. We've got 5 'New & Notable' podcasts on the top with a link that says 'See All...' at the end.
Below that we've got the same with 'Featured at the top'. Again with a 'See All...' link at the end.

So, if I hit either of the 'See All' links, iTunes opens new music album releases? 'Wall->head'! :mad: Hello? I selected podcasts at the very first stage of my browsing, NOT new album releases.
It always redirects to new album releases. I don't care about your new fancy albums Mr. Apple! I want podcasts.
Of course my phone still says that it is in 'Technology'. Stupid iPhone. ;)

Seriously, wft? I don't get it.
Of course I can search the podcast manually, which get's me the right result, but that's really not how the iTunes store is supposed to work.
