How do you permanently stop a particular podcast episode downloading in iTunes?

Every time I fire up iTunes and it automatically starts to get the lastest podcasts from my subscriptions, there are always some episodes that I don't want to get which happen to be the latest ones from a couple of rarely-updated podcasts. On the Downloads page I find the podcast I don't want and pause it, then delete that row from the list.

"What is the problem? Is an old show trying to get downloaded or a new show you don't want?

I have a few ideas. One would be to delete that episode from the podcast page. Expand that podcast and delete out anything you don't want.

Another option would be to unsubscribe. If doesn't remove it from your list, it just won't check for new shows.

Of like @caliban said, switch those feeds to a manual update. There is a settings link on the bottom. Choose your show from the dropdown list and change the settings to manual updates."
