    I have a 16gb 2gen ipod touch, 2.2 firmware. I downloaded some new podcasts, not just new episodes of something I already had. Then I decided I wanted to delete some of the podcasts. I couldn't find a way to do it in the device, I know how apple has been handling deleting from a list so I synced to get them into itunes and delete them from there. But syncing didn't transfer them to my computer, and they don't show up in the list of podcasts under ipod info. How do I get them off my touch?
    Thanks, Nate

    My sorry, I just found the answer online. For those who don't know, here's how to do it.

    In the music app, select a podcast feed from the list. Swipe from left to right over an episode in the list, and the delete button will appear. Click it, and a popup confirmation dialog will come up. Click delete and you're done!

    Sorry I double posted and unnecessarily posted...

    But if you try to delete a Podcast that came from iTunes before playing it, iTunes puts it straight back again on the next sync.
