audio playing things

So I think my ipod is dead. Well it still works and will play what's already on it, but itunes or my computer won't recognize it properly and I got some error message that apparently means bad news. I don't know if it can be fixed or not, but if it can be, I can't figure out how. Also this ipod is pretty old... It's like 2nd generation ipod nano I think, so it's had a pretty decent lifespan I guess.

So I need to buy a new mp3 player. What I primarily will be using it for is podcasts. I don't even listen it music on all that much. I'm not sure if I should get another ipod (itunes is the worst) or if I should try a different brand. (And if I go with something else, how hard will it be to get podcasts on it?)

Just wondering if anyone has any good recs, or stuff to stay away from as far as mp3 player/ipods go? I have been trying to look stuff up but it's sort of confusing and I don't really have the motivation to delve all that deeply into the world of mp3 players. I just want to be able to subscribe to more podcasts and listen to them all!

I use a Sansa Clip+ for music, but I don't know how well that would work for podcasts--you'd have to manually upload them rather than subscribing. It seems like these days, there aren't that many dedicated mp3 players out there, because most people just use their phones.
