    Is this still possible or has it been removed?

    Looks like it's been removed, unfortunately.

    Whoever thought it would be a better idea to have 4 apps (video, music, podcasts, & iTunesU) instead of 1 should be fired.

    If someone finds a work-around you'll be blessed!

    They removed podcasts from the Music player shortly after they released the standalone Podcast app last year as I recall.

    It's been over a year since that was possible.

    Yeah, I think it was part of the iOS 6 update.

    Yeah, they originally removed it a while back (a year or so), but you could add it back in by synching your podcasts through iTunes with no Podcast or iTunesU installed on the phone.

    I did that and have been running podcasts and iTunesU content through Music successfully since then.

    ...until now

    Actually I didn't even realize there was a podcasts app for a while and never installed it. the music app played podcasts just fine. Welp now looks like I don't have a choice. Even better I can't download the podcast app because the store is swamped right now.

    I've just come across this annoyance with IOS7 too :( as an avid Podcast listener - I do quite like syncing via Itunes as I find it easy to manage that way

    also I listen/watch some on my computer via Itunes and some on the hop on the phone - this is much harder now too as my local Itunes on computer now has no downloaded podcasts ?

    unless I am missing something ?

    in fact I can't even seem to get the Podcasts app to work properly on my Iphone it just seems to hang on entry into the app - shows my list of subscriptions but then freezes ?

    I'm having the same issue, glad and not glad to see at the same that other people are having that issue.

    Can't believe there hasn't been an iOS 7 re-design of the podcasts app yet. Hopefully they release an update within the week. Seems like something that should have been there launch day though.

    I've also been using the Music app to play podcasts. Having to use the Podcasts app is really damn annoying.
