Podcast author appears in artist list (on iPod)

Recommended Posts


Although i love the Maccast podcast (and others), all of the Podcast authors i have on my iPod appear in my Artist list on my iPod. I find this a little irritating since i dont access my Podcasts in this way. Does anyone know what to do to keep the Podcast authors out of the Artist list?

I would be grateful for your help.

The sort answer is that you can't. The long answer is that you can always clear out all the Artist names in your podcast tracks using iTunes, or use the Genre field to distinguish between Podcast, Music, TV Show, Movie, etc. That way when you select Genre->Music on the iPod you will have a list of music artists. If you did decide to use this technique you could still support regular genres with the comment field and create smartlists for each genre to allow you to browse by genre. (It's an awkward solution, but it works.)
