So, I don't understand why Apple continues to really not want people to use the default music app to listen to podcasts. Like 6 months ago, I tried the Apple podcast app because I wanted to stream a podcast I hadn't had a chance to go home and get off of iTunes, and then the podcast app A) has a stupid UI and I sorta didn't like how it organized things, and B) I seem to recall it removed podcasts from the music app because it assumed I wouldn't want to use it for that anymore (incorrect). I uninstalled it pretty shortly after, because the default music app seemed better.
But now with iOS 7, it just won't let the music app access your podcasts, for some godforsaken reason. Why does Apple hate just offering one app for all your "playing audio" needs?
So how do you iOS duders listen to podcasts now?
