Ok, unless I'm missing something, I can't see my podcasts anymore? The only place they appear is in a new "Podcasts" playlist, which isn't much use to me for keeping track of episodes and subscriptions.

Am I just being blind? :-/

You may need to recheck the Podcasts checkbox in the menu iTunes | Preferences... | General tab. OSX Daily suggests that it may be unchecked by default. Once checked, podcasts should appear under Library rather than as a playlist.

It seems, even though there are episodes in a playlist, that I have to add every single episode from scratch since I upgraded :( – Django Reinhardt Nov 29 '12 at 22:19

If you hit option-command-s it will bring up the sidebar. You will see your Podcasts there.

Once you have podcasts showing, using the dropdown upper right, if you switch to list view (weirdly located as one of 3 options in center of entire window, under "progress bar"), if you then click the twirl-down arrow for a podcast, a big gray arrow will automatically show if there are un-dowloaded episodes of that podcast. Click that, and a window will ask you if you want to download all episodes, which obviously you do. It all seems a little odd and seems like Apple needs to work on tis a bit more.
