Hi Shane,

Great job on the podcast about using podcasts with iTunes and iPods.
One quick suggested addition for the place where you talk about being
careful not to sync your iPod when you've deleted a podcast:

You can stop iTunes from auto sync'ing with an iPod by holding down
the Command and Option keys when you connect your iPod.  (In 
Windows, you'd have to hold down the Shift and Control keys to keep
iTunes from sync'ing.)  Make sure that you hold these keys down 
long enough to keep your iPod from sync'ing (depends on how long
your connection usually takes, but could be as long as 25 seconds,
depending on your model).  Then, you can go into your preferences
menu and make any changes about how you want your sync'ing done.

HTH

Cheers,

Esther
