How Can I Create a Smart Podcast Playlist?

Here is what I’d like to do: Create a Smart Playlist in iTunes that will roll up all of my unplayed podcast downloads into a single playlist I can work my way through while running, biking, or driving.

Since my iPod doesn’t offer a continuous play option for podcast tracks, I’m trying to figure out a way to trick it into behaving in a rational manner.

Here is what logically should work. Create a smart playlist selecting podcasts with a play count of zero:

iTunes Smart Playlist for Podcasts

However, it doesn’t. I end up getting all podcasts – unplayed and played.

Ben suggested I make sure to check the “All Unplayed” option in on the sync interface. Done. No difference. It seems like my Smart Playlist is overriding this setting.

Any suggestions?
