Submission + - iTunes doesn't care about podcasts

elcid73 writes: I listen to a large variety of podcasts with different publishing schedules and levels of interest that has led me to believe that the simple podcast managment of iTunes has failed to meet my needs.
iTunes applies a blanket approach to podcast subscriptions that assumes they are all consumed in the same manner; its a music manager first that has been adopted for podcasts. It should instead embrace the many ways that audio is being published and subscribed to. One suggestion would be to move the concept of playlists over to podcasts and allow us to set download/sync options on playlists instead of each individual podcast.
I plan to evaluate ODEO, Juice, Songbird shortly, but what other software/projects are out there for someone who loves the "whole iPod experience" but feels left out here? Is anyone else despondent with iTunes for podcasts?
