Default getting podcasts to play on shuffle or random?

hi - i like to listen to podcasts when working out or running.

how can i have them play on random? lots are pretty short and i am horrible at deciding what to listen to next "oh this one looks good, or this one, oh wait.."

it seems that i could probably have a rather convoluted playlist setup in the media player on my Fascinate with only music on one and only podcasts on another, but that seems like it would require constant updating since the media player doesn't seem to recognize "podcast" as a genre.

i use Doggcatcher (pd version) but don't see a way to make a playlist or have it just randomly select episodes.

thanks for any ideas on media player, podcatcher, or file naming hack, etc!

so i just downloaded the PowerAmp media player.

it has a pretty easy interface to add the Doggcatcher folders to a playlist and then shuffle just that playlist.

i still have the Doggcatcher folder hidden from the main media player, so i guess i can still use that for music?

anyways, seems pretty cool and probably worth the $5 if it does what i want easily
