As best I can tell there are two different issues here:
- In iTunes / Podcasts / List view: this now shows ALL episodes of every podcast you've subscribed to. Note that these are not necessarily on your computer: the ones with a cloud icon are just "available out there on the internet", and are not on your computer. The ones without the cloud icon ARE on your computer. Unfortunately at the moment you cannot remove the cloud-icon episodes. Note that you're not trying to delete these, because there's no file on your computer to delete - you're just just trying to remove them from the list. (The List view is now permanently set on "Show all available episodes" - I hope this is a bug and not a "feature", and the old view style will be restored in a future update.)
- Deleting podcast files that are actually on your computer: I've found that I cannot just delete a podcast episode. Instead, I need to mark them as played, and then resync. Apple will get rid of them that way. If I actually delete the file, Apple will redownload it for me, I presume in a horribly misguided attempt to be helpful.

Same issue as Lost, and it is annoying. I have found that even the mark as played and resynch does not necessarily work in getting a podcast deleted from My Podcasts (even without the cloud icon, let alone with).
