New Shuffle won't play any more than one podcast

Is the latest iPod Shuffle only built to play only one podcast at a time?
Although I drag, say, six podcasts into the Shuffle, once it gets to the end of the first podcast it simply begins that same podcast all over again. It won't move on to the second podcast. I have to plug it into the PC, delete the podcast that's just been played and only then will it play the next podcast.
What am I doing wrong guys & gals or is how it's supposed to be?
Oh, I should add that the previous generation played the podcasts one after the other without a break.

Podcasts are tagged as "Skip when shuffling" by default, so if the iPod is in shuffle mode it will cease playback at then end of a podcast. Turn shuffle off, or re-tag your podcasts and you'll be fine.

create a playlist on the Ipod and copy the files to the playlist not to "podcasts" (they end up visible there anyway)...and it works the way you want it.

No thanks to useless apple support finding this workaround.
