I added some podcasts from the iTunes store to the iPhone Podcasts app version 1.2.3 on iOS 6.1.3.

My iTunes 11.0.5 sync settings for this phone's podcasts is sync podcasts, and automatically include all episodes or all podcasts.

However, iTunes does not copy the podcasts from the Podcasts app into iTunes.

How should I do this?

I think for this to work, you need to enable iCloud syncing for podcasts between your devices. The setting you refer to above only applies when you sync your phone from iTunes, either via USB or Wi-Fi. I could be wrong, but as far as I know it only syncs podcasts from iTunes to your phone, not the other way around.

Also, make sure there is enough space on your phone for all those podcasts.
