I listen to a lot of podcasts on my iPhone and wasn’t happy when iOS 6 forced me to use Apple’s Podcasts app to listen. The Podcasts app is terrible for managing podcasts, and pretty buggy to boot.
Fortunately, there’s a workaround posted on the MacWorld forums: Listen to podcasts with Music app on iOS 6
Three (simple?) steps to get podcasts back in the Music app:
- Delete the Podcasts app
- Force quit the Music app
- Open the Music app and you’ll find Podcasts under the More tab
