can we sync without stopping everything we're doing?

One of the biggest annoyances I have about it is that in the middle of playing a podcast, if I so decide to hook it up to the computer to have it clear out all the podcasts I've already listened to, it also stops the current podcast while it's syncing, and then I have to go back from the home screen into iPod, select the podcast again, and scroll through the list to start the podcast again.

I know I can just wait until the end of the podcast, sync, and then start the next podcast, but that makes me wait until the end of the podcast, which may not be for another half an hour. And it really doesn't make sense that it has to stop everything while syncing.

Is there a technical reason why it does this, or is it just Apple arbitrarily stopping things to tell you it's syncing?

the only reason I can think that it would do this is because it does not want you to mess the sync up. Just wait for the podcast to end.
