If you have these older podcast episodes in iTunes, you can get them into the Podcasts app on your iOS device. Create an iTunes playlist with these desired older podcasts, and sync to your iOS device - now playlists with podcasts are shown within the Podcasts app, not the iTunes app.
You can read about how to sync podcasts (and other media) in iTunes 11 here:
If you downloaded these older episodes outside of iTunes, just be sure they are supported file formats:
You can listen to most common podcast file formats in iTunes, including MP3, AAC, WAV, and .M4B. BitTorrent and WMA are some podcast formats that are not supported.
Have a good one,

Thanks for the help, David.
I don't entirely understand how to do what you're suggesting.
I set up a new playlist, and added the podcast episodes to it. Unfortunately, I cannot see the playlist within the management screens of my iOS device (an iPhone 4). It's not show under either the Music or Podcasts tabs.

It may also depend on how you have your syncing set up. If iTunes syncs only unplayed episodes, then marking the episodes you want as unplayed may do the trick.
If you want to keep them longer for re-listening, then adding them to a playlist may be a better option.

Are hey actually in the Pocasts section of your Mac's iTunes? Make sure they are by doing a Get Info on them and changing the Media Type to "Podcast". Provided you have sep the syncing settings to sync those podcasts, they should show correctly in Mac iTunes.
BUT, I have done this, and you'll likely have them show in the iOS Podcasts app all in the SAME folder!
