Does iTunes know what Podcasts I've listened to?

Is iTunes supposed to know what Podcasts I've listened do? I mean when I drop my iPod in it's dock at the end of the day, during the update process does it send back what was played, so that if I've told iTunes to delete podcasts I've listened to then it will automatically delete them from the iPod?

I haven't tested out that exact senario but I do know that iTunes does know when you have played a podcast. I set up a SMART playlist and lists any podcasts that have 0 plays. So as soon as I listen to one from beginning to end and then sync to the computer that podcast is removed from my list.

To delete Podcasts from the iPod, iTunes first has to "Update the iPod". This sets the playcounts in iTunes, then when you "Update Podcasts" in iTunes, it will delete the played shows from iTunes. To complete the process you have to update the iPod again to remove the deleted podcasts from the iPod.

So what I do is plug in my nano to my iBook to charge, iTunes pops up and updates the iPod. Then I'll hit the manual update button in the Podcasts view. Once the new podcasts are finnished dowloading, or the next day before I disconnect the nano, I'll "Update the iPod" to remove old shows and add the new ones.
