Glad to find this group! I just submitted the same question entitled "Continuous Play" before is showed me this thread.
For me, unchecking everything has no effect at all. Many of my groups (Boxcars 711, for example) have everything unchecked but it just keeps playing everything in order and, then, continues on to the next group (Captain Midnight, for example) and plays everything there. This just needs to be fixed by the iTunes people since there isn't any option for selecting single play.

It seems Apple has taken a page from MS of ten years ago - decide what users want and don't give us a choice. None of these workarounds work for me, and here's why;
In the morning I want to play today's news podcast and then I want the playback to stop.
In the evening I want to play the entertainment and editorial and commentary and I want to play them continuously in the order I choose (generally oldest to newest) from the playlist I've set up. If I uncheck everything the evening doesn't play continously. If I leave everything checked, I have to babysit it in the morning.
This =was= the default behavior.
Imagine the thrash I'd have to do twice a day to use one of these workarounds.
Nor do I have any faith that Apple will correct this issue - except maybe by accident. It will take a lot more than three pages of disgruntled customers to get an actual programing change instituted.

I must agree. It seems Apple took an application that worked pretty well and totally screwed it up for no reason that I can discern but incompetence.

If selecting shuffle mode for podcasts does not fall under babysitting, click "shuffle" (crossing double arrow will turn blue) in the morning to play a single podcast in your playlist. Unclick "shuffle" in the evening to play the entire playlist. This works for me, it might works for you.

Go to 'Controls' - 'Shuffle' - 'Turn On Shuffle' worked for me.

This will apply to your entire iTunes Library including audio playback. To only apply it to podcasts play a single podcast and select the crossing double arrows in the play window. It will stick until you close iTunes.
