    Hey

    I subscribe to a podcast which posts new songs on a radio station. Is it possible to make those songs stop behaving like podcast tracks? ie: being able to goto next track without it stopping and not remembering the position within the track.

    Thanks

    Try Get Info > Options (in iTunes) on the Podcast and disabling "remember track position".

    FTR, you can also actually convert Podcasts into regular old MP3 or AACs if you want to archive old shows (if you wanted to delete the RSS or something).

    Just set your import preference to whatever format you want the file to be, the right-click on it and select "Convert to AAC" (or MP3 or whatever you use).

    It'll break the association of that file with the Podcast URL, and the file(s) will just show up in "Music" like regular music files.

    Thanks for this tip. I've wanted to slim down the podcasts w/o deleting them for a while. This helps greatly!
