I have a Smart Playlist that selects a set of music and podcasts for me to listen to throughout the day. However, iTunes decides it's a good idea to check the "Skip when shuffling" checkbox for all podcasts the moment it downloads them:

The Nerdist podcast, with "Skip when shuffling" checked.

My current workaround is unchecking these manually for each podcast, and does indeed include them when playing the playlist, but this is obviously not a permanent fix. Is there any way to tell iTunes that is's OK to play podcasts when shuffling by default?
