I don't have an iPod, but have you tried comparing all the id3 tags
from a podcast that works (shows up as a podcast) versus the ones
in your podcasts? It's something to try, anyway ... maybe it's as
simple as that, though I suppose you've already tried that.
Though the available id3 genres are extremely limited when it comes
to podcasts -- "Speech" (0x65) is about the only genre id3tool knows
about that a poscast could reasonably use (and my mp3 player, a
Sansa, doesn't recognize it so I fell back on "Other", 0x0C, for
converting podcasts I download).
