Podcast Episode Tags
As can be seen from the following examples podcast clients add or update a lot of tags in the process of retrieving episodes.
The original mp3 downloaded from the feeds media repository contains almost no tags. Some feeds are better than others, but, this is not an unusual condition for the original files provided.

iTunes stores episodes in it's iTunes folder Podcasts directory. A separate folder is created for each podcast. The folder is named the same as the Podcast feed Title which is also stored in the Album tag.
