By default the Zune software only downloads the three most recent episodes for each of your podcast. But for those of you who just can't get enough Diggnation, Ask a Ninja, or Best Week Ever, you can easily up the number using an easy-to-use yet hard-to-find settings page.
To change the default for every downloaded podcast, click Settings (in the upper-right corner), then choose the subhead Software, then Podcasts. Drag the slider to adjust the number kept, from just the most recent episode to all of the episodes in the series.
To change the number for individual podcasts (let's say you only want a couple of the most recent HomestarRunner, but you want to catch up on all of the Dub Session mixes), go to the Podcast section of your collection and select the podcast you want to change. Right-click either the thumbnail of the podcast or one of the titles and click Series Settings (or use the Series Settings button at the bottom of the rightmost column).
If you're new to a series and want to see what all the fuss is about, you can tell the software to prioritize the older episodes and play them before the newer ones.
