What's the best way to keep podcast subscriptions and listens on two Macs and an iPhone synced that supports downloading episodes (i.e., not web-only)? If the answer involves iTunes, I might need an explanation of how to fix it since each copy of iTunes seems to be doing its own thing. I'm not looking for live slinging/transfer of audio to another device since the Macs are in completely different locations and the phone isn't always around.
I subscribe to the KEXP song of the day. It's got great stuff. I used to be able to right click on the podcast and say "Convert to AAC" and then just change the type to music. Now...not so much. What's the trick to turning podcasts into songs these days?

iTunes now streams podcasts from the cloud, and as far as I can tell no longer provides the capacity to download the mp3 podcast files onto my iMac. [more inside]
Actually, I'm kind of not loving anything in iOS 7. Perhaps it is the shock of the new. Or just realy ugly design. Anyway, that is not my problem. My specific issue is that iTunes is now apparently arranging my podcast feed at random, rather than alphabetically or any other sensible system. Looking at online forums, there doesn't seem to be a way to fix this. Is there? Or, failing that, is there another podcast app that would work better for me?
Better podcast handler/podcatcher wanted. My current setup is iPhone 4S 32GB / Windows 7 / iTunes - I have been using iTunes since my first iPhone and I'm ready to switch. I am an avid podcast listener and this is where iTunes and I have come to a parting of the ways. [more inside]
I just got a new ipod(classic) today, all the music synced fine and most of my podcasts too. However, i have 18 that won't sync and it keeps saying it can't find them even though they're all right there on itunes as i just downloaded them. I made sure everything was up to date, and even restarted itunes but still nothing. If it matters i'm using a mac(2007/08?), with itunes 11.0.3, snow leopard. Is there anyway i can get them to sync?

I've read that a podcast becomes more popular on iTunes the more people review it. Is that true? Why is that the case? Is it worth it to ask listeners of my podcast to review it to improve the podcast rank?
In the last few weeks, I suddenly have *two* Podcasts categories in my iTunes - and when I try to update the original one, my iTunes crashes. My google fu would indicate this is a rather rare problem. Help? [more inside]
What's a decent iPhone app for downloading/listening to podcasts? I'm trying to avoid syncing it to iTunes every time I want to get new podcasts, so I'd like to use this app to subscribe to one and let me know when new episodes are available (that's the important part), listen to them, and delete them. Didn't find much of anything in the AskMeFi archives except a reference to Podcaster, but does anyone have any personal recommendations? Free or not-free. Thanks!
Anyone know of a better podcast client than iTunes? [more inside]
iTunes will not download the latest podcasts from my subscriptions. Even if I unsubscribe and delete all my podcasts and then subscribe again, it won't download the latest ones. This happens for multiple podcasts. I've uninstall/reinstalled iTunes and the same thing. If I go to the podcast directly in the iTunes store, I can click on the specific episode and download it but it won't update in iTunes even if I try to manually update. Any ideas? It's driving me crazy and Apple won't help. My settings haven't changed. I have it set to check every hour and download the most recent one and to only keep unplayed podcasts.

iTunes added my new music tracks as podcast episodes, but doesn't show them under Podcasts -- how can I delete them?
I added some new music tracks to iTunes, and for some reason it thought they were podcast episodes. So it doesn't show them under 'Music'. But it's not showing them in the 'Podcasts' library either. I've deleted the music files from the Finder, but how can I clear out the tracks from my iTunes library? [more inside]

iTunesFilter, part I: Why can't podcasts downloaded from the Music Store play in shuffled playlists? Is there any way around this? If I'm in a shuffled playlist mixed with podcasts and regular MP3's, it will only go from regular MP3's to regular MP3's and skip the podcasts downloaded from the MS altogether. Of course, if I go back to linear play mode, the podcasts play allright. iTunesFilter, part II: Is there any way to make the podcasts always start at the beginning of the track (i.e., to remove the bookmark function)?
