How to make iTunes download all podcast episodes irrespective of listened/not

I am a big iPod user (especially podcasts). I have used iPod touch, iPod classic and iPod nano. I noticed that iTunes stops downloading podcasts that you no longer listen to and stops downloading them. Is there a way to force iTunes to download all episodes of podcasts irrespective of whether you listen to them or not?

"GET Available Podcast Episodes v2.1
This script will let you GET any or all un-downloaded episodes of the Podcasts you have subscribed to, rather than clicking the ""GET"" button for each one individually in the Podcasts playlist.

This does the same as castmaster – at least the bit on this thread, and is free. That site also has tonnes of great scripts."

"For Mac Users:

My new app Castmaster solves this problem by forcing iTunes to download all podcast episodes, even those that haven't been listened to recently.

It's available on the Mac App Store,

To enable this, check ""Keep Subscriptions Active"" in the Settings window."

"Stolen from Re-download podcasts without subscribing again:

The following works on the Windows version of iTunes:

Delete podcasts with grey exclamation mark from your podcast list. (Right-click » ""Delete"")
Download episode list (Right-click on the podcast title » ""Show all available episodes"")
Click the ""Get all"" button."
