    Have you tried making a playlist containing all of the ones you want to listen to?

    no, i figured it would treat podcasts liek it does music under artists and just play each song/episode back to back, it seem a hastle to have to always create a playlist for the episodes doesnt it? lol maybe im just lazy :D

    I think it treats each podcast as if it were a seperate album.

    Why not make a smart playlist to play the ones you've not listened to before.

    FWIW. It looks like they have changed the behaviour of podcasts in playlists in firmware rev 1.2. I have a Smart Playlist of the NYT most e-mailed stories podcast which is only ~ 1 minute long and it now plays one episode and stops instead of playing the rest of the episodes in the playlist, just as if I had played it from the podcast directory. :(
