After c. 5 years, I 'upgraded' from a 3g touch to a 5g model. I soon noticed that the list of podcasts shown on the iPod was getting longer and longer. There were at least 3 copies of each podcast source in the list.
I'm on iOS 8.4.1 and I just deleted all the podcasts from the iPod and then also from my iTunes and resubscribed to the podcasts I regularly hear.
It's only been a few days but the iPod now shows 2 copies of each subscribed podcast.
Is there anyone who can explain to a simple software engineer what I might be doing wrong? After all I'm not new to the iPod but I cannot figure out what's going wrong here.
