What determines whether podcasts are played individually or sequentially on an iPod?

Basically, I have a lot of podcasts on my iPod.
At one point, it would play just one podcast, and then stop. There was a period of a few weeks where I didn't listen to podcasts, and now when I go to listen to a podcast, when I finish one, the iPod begins playing the next.

This is an issue for me because I generally listen to podcasts when going to sleep. As such, the iPod generally goes through maybe ~10 podcasts overnight, and I loose track of where I was.


Basically, originally my iPod played podcasts one-by-one, I changed something, and now it does not.

However, I've been through the menus on the iPod, and I cannot see anything that looks like it would be related to the podcast playback behaviour. Whatever was changed, It's not readily apparent the effects it has.

I added one of the podcasts to a on-the-go playlist, and suddenly all the podcasts are playing individually, rather then sequentially.

I have no idea why adding one podcast to the in-the-go playlist affected every podcast, or what would actually be required to return the behaviour to the way it used to be (sequential playing), but there you are.

Yup, this is kind of frustrating. I haven't had the time to figure out whether it is a technical or configuration issue, but my solution is to put all podcasts that I want to play sequentially in a playlist.

So without playlist, they play individually, but in a playlist they play sequentially very well.

  • You're answer is the exact opposite of what I want. I'm having issues because all my podcasts are playing sequentially, and I want them to play individually – Fake Name Sep 25 '12 at 18:31
