I have 2 accounts (home and work) on my MacBook, and would like have both accounts accessing the same iTunes library.

I have some success by putting the iTunes Library in the public folder of my home account, so my work account can access the same files too. However, what I would like is to have my Podcasts sync as well. So that when I plug in my iPhone, I can sync my Podcast regardless which account I am on.

Any idea how to do that?

Thanks. As I mentioned, I can share music, but I want my podcast to be synced. – revolver Mar 6 '12 at 4:07

It seems this is not entirely possible as per this Apple discussions thread:
