    I have a Smart Playlist setup that takes contains the two most recent episodes of a podcast; everything shows up properly in iTunes. If I set the iPod Shuffle (2G) to "Autofill" from that playlist, it clears all of the music off the iPod but doesn't upload the episodes of the podcast. If I manually drag the Podcasts to the Shuffle, it loads and plays them fine.

    If I make a Smart Playlist that does the same thing, but for music tracks, it works as expected.

    Is there some trick that I'm missing? Some hidden way to get a proper "Podcasts" tab in iTunes for the Shuffle?

    Or is there a good place to report bugs to Apple?

    Unfortunately, that's just the way it works:

    If you'd like to provide feedback to Apple on this, you can do so here.

    I was wondering the same thing. I never would have guessed that it was intentional though. Does anyone know why they decided to do this?

    In the Microsoft universe, we call this a "feature"
