    I bought an Ipod touch with the hope that I could download podcast directly from Itunes at a wifi hot spot. When I browse to the itunes store there is only music available - not podcasts, movies or audio books.

    How do I access podcasts?
    Thanks

    It doesn't have that feature since it will take forever to download and it will also drain the battery faster by using up wifi too much. Know what I mean? Music tends to download faster because the 3-5 MB size..Imagine having to download a 1.5GB movie?

    Well, if you're jailbroken, go to installer and download mobilecast. It works surprisingly well.

    You cannot download anything from the itunes store on the ipod except music, but as mentioned before, it is possible by jailbreaking.

    Enough of the movie spam - he didn't ask about them.
    if you do jailbreak and get MobileCast, you will also have to get to RSS feed url to enter into it.
