How to manage podcasts?

I want to subscribe to a podcast, keep all unplayed episodes, and play back from oldest to newest. If I select "keep all" then literally every available episode is downloaded. After marking the 50+ I've already heard before I got the phone as played, the podcasts don't go away. If I delete them and change settings, they are all downloaded again. The windows phone desktop app doesn't appear to manage subscriptions, it mostly just transfers files. How is this supposed to work? I really want it to but this just doesn't seem right.

Re: How to manage podcasts?

Previously on my Lumia 800, I was using Zune to subscribe and sync from laptop to phone.

 

On the 920, I now use a free app from the store called 'Podcast'. The interface is a bit weird but it works for me but doesn't support video. Benefit is that I can manually sync direct to phone, no laptop involveed.

 

However I understand their is a better app (not free) that I will try, called 'Podcatcher'.
