Specifically with the iPod Touch that was released in September 2010, is it possible to download a podcast directly to the unit. The answers that I've found so far involve jailbreaking, which I'm not interested in doing.

I would like to avoid having to use my main computer at all for managing podcasts, if possible.

This depends a lot on what version of iOS you are running. Please specify software versions! –  Daniel Lawson Mar 2 '13 at 3:41

You could always use a third party app like PodCaster.

+1 for the idea. For whatever reason, the 3rd party apps that I found all required jail breaking. This particular app, however, has some bad reviews that are concerning. Anyone know of more solid and polished apps that perform this function? –  jdl Sep 10 '10 at 15:16
    
Yeah, that app is kinda marginal at best. –  JohnFx Sep 11 '10 at 3:58

On the iPhone which is more or less the same thing; in the iTunes application there is a podcast section under "More"

Does that mean that I can download a podcast directly to the iPod, or do I have to sync it from iTunes on my computer? –  jdl Sep 10 '10 at 14:39

@Kyle Cronin: Aren't all iPod Touch models wifi-only? –  jdl Sep 10 '10 at 23:20
    
@jdl Yes, sorry. u07ch mentioned his iPhone and I forgot the question was about iPod Touches. –  Kyle Cronin Sep 12 '10 at 19:29
    
Went to my local apple store on saturday; the iTunes application on them had the podcast section so if your podcast is in itunes you can download it without a computer. –  Anonymous Sep 13 '10 at 14:35
