With your nano connected, bring up the preferences in iTunes. Look at the iPod preferences.
First off, look at the music tab. If the nano is set up to sync only slected playlists, then you should be able to remove the podcasts from the nano by removing the podcasts from the playlist and re-syncing. If the nano is set up to sync manually, you should be able to directly delete the podcast from the nano.
If those aren't working, then you need to check the Podcast tab in your iPod preferences. How is it set up? Are you automaticly syncing all podcasts? Does it keep the podcasts, or just the ones that haven't been listened to? If you want to have no podcasts at all on your nano, mark it to only sync selected podcasts and then unselect the entire list.
When you click OK to close the preferences, your nano should automaticly update.
That's the best I can do without iTunes open in front of me. Hope this helps.
This happened to me too. I have a 2g nano - more than half was filled with podcasts I had listened to. I had already tried the above recommendations but they did'nt work.
What I have done now is adjust my ipod preferences to manually manage both Music and Podcasts, and then I have created some smart playlists to group the podcasts I have not played and then I select all (command A) and drag & drop them to the ipod while it's connected. then I choose some music and do the same. Its irritating but it's worked so far.
Cheers all - Happy New Year
