Select podcasts for deletion.

David267, I tried your suggestion, but the one podcast I want to delete is not there in the list.
I had previously gone into iTunes and deleted it there, but it also didn't delete off my Podcasts app. Any other ideas?

Well ... <deep breath>. You're right! And I guess that's what the earlier poster said too, without the picture. Thank you so much.
And yet ... I still don't know how to reliably get to that menu. Right now I am looking at my Podcasts app. (I don't know how to add a picture of an iPhone screen). Instead of Podcasts as the main screen name, I see My Podcasts and to the left it says Store, not Edit. This is what I always see. I click on Store, and that's no help; I got back to Libary, and Store is where Edit "should be." To the right of My Podcasts is the reload arrow and the Now Playing button.
After reading your post, I clicked on the "reload" circular arrow and -- miracles! -- got an Edit button where Store usually is, and was able to delete those unwanted podcasts. But now, once again, I can't figure out how to get Edit to come up. Of course I no longer need to Edit, but I would sure like to know how to get it to come up. If you can show me how to go from opening Podcasts to finding the Edit button, every time, I would appreciate that on top of being very grateful that you've already helped me get rid of this annoying problem.
(The lack of Help features in Podcasts, and all apps, perpetually drives me crazy.)

Almost there then! : )
Unless we have different versions of the app – mine is the last update, I don't have an old one to check out if the behaviour is different – it should be visible when the app starts. That being said, the "edit - search - display view" bar is not a fixed menu bar like the "store - ... - now playing", but slides with the podcast list. So if it's not visible, try pulling the list down:
There is some (limited) help for Apple's iOS apps here.
PS: If you want to take a screenshot of your iPhone's screen, you can do it by pressing the home button + power button simultaneously. You'll see and hear a flash and the image will be stored on the camera roll. Then you can share it in any of the usual ways. You can only upload it to a discussion here, though, on a regular browser, since most mobile ones (on iOS at least) don't support file uploads.

Ahaaaa! That's where it's hiding!
I was also stumped as I couldn't find the Edit button. Pulling down and releasing, wow, who would have thought of that. (tapping the reload button hadn't done anything.)

If I'm not mistaken, your issue may be the same as mine. I would delete the podcast from my mobil but once I sync iTunes puts the podcast right back onto my device. Then I end up with all those deleted podcasts AGAIN! If you are in iTunes, look on the left side and see where it says 'podcasts'. Click on that and you can "edit" your podcast list. Go and get rid of those unwanted podcasts and see them no more!
