How to Get a Podcast Playlist to Play Continuously on a Nano


Podcasts can be truly fantastic for talk radio, music, education, news and more. If you're a podcast fan and happen to have an iPod nano, you probably figured you would be able to catch up on all of your podcast episodes on the go. You transferred your podcast to your iPod nano, selected an episode and began to listen. Then, when the episode was over, your playlist stopped. Such is the bizarre structure of podcast playlists in iTunes and on Apple devices, leaving you forced to go in and manually select the next episode. Luckily, you can use a little trick to get your podcast episodes to play continuously on your iPod nano.

  • Open iTunes on your computer and then click the "Podcast" playlist link in the left column of the application window.

  • Select the podcast episodes that you want to play continuously on your iPod nano. Use the "Shift" key to select multiple episodes in a row or the "Command" key to select multiple nonconsecutive episodes. To select all episodes, select "Edit" from the top menu bar and then choose "Select All."

  • Select "File" from the top menu bar and then choose "New Playlist from Selection." You must create your own playlist with the podcast if you want to be able to play episodes continuously. Using the automatic playlist that iTunes creates for podcasts will not work.

  • Type a name for your podcast playlist into the field.

  • Connect your iPod nano to your computer and add your new podcast playlist. If you use automatic syncing, select the icon for your iPod nano, click the "Music" tab and then check the box next to your new playlist. If you use the manual management feature, drag your playlist and drop it into your iPod nano's music library.

Tips & Warnings

  • To make your podcast repeat on your iPod nano, swipe to access the volume screen and then tap the continuous arrows icon. Tap once to repeat all, twice to repeat one track and three times to remove the repeat function.
