    Here's the scenario: Going on a trip and taking iPad, no computer. Prior to heading out, I will update podcasts to listen to on the plane. When ready to head home, want to update podcasts again for the trip back. I can't seem to find a way to do this (looking for something that will update in one fell swoop -- like the "refresh" in my iTunes). I guess I could go into the iTunes store and search them out one by one, but that does not seem like a very managable way. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The only way to do it is on a podcast by podcast basis. Go into the iPod app, select Podcasts, select the podcast you want to update then click on the "Get More Episodes..." link at the bottom of the list. This will open the iTunes app and list the available episodes. Click on the button in the Price column to download an episode. This is the one thing I wish Apple would update in the OS. I want an "Update All Podcasts" option like there is for apps.
