    Hi there

    Im using a lumia 920

    Im frustrated over the lack of podcasts in the Store. I used to use itunes, and I would find all my favorite podcasts in there. But I can't even find one of my favorites i the Store. (And how frustrating is it that there is no podcast section, like Music, Apps, games and Nokia collection... Why no Podcast? For som reason it is combined with Music.
    I live in Norway, could that be why there are so few podcasts in the Store? Im looking for The Joe Rogan Experience. Or is it because it is up to the podcasters where to uploade them to?
    Has anyone any link to planned updates on wp8, and what the might contain?
    It can't be right that I need to use a third party app to get my favorite podcasts.

    hope u can help me

    Thanks

    There are podcasts in some locations in the store, but Microsoft hasn't done a great job of expanding some of their services, here's the current lineup of what services are available in which countries:

    Microsoft Feature And Service Availablity Matrix (For Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Xbox) - Andrew Tech Help

    As to expansion, these have generally accompanied larger operating system/phone updates, so it's really hard to forecast when something like podcasts might be available in Norway.

    Sorry for a stupid questions but aren't there 3rd party apps that you can use to manage the podcasts you like? Is this more a question of "why isn't it integrated" vs. "they aren't available to listen to"? I just got the wife her Lumia 920 yesterday and she's not a podcast listener so I haven't explored this. Unfortunately I am stuck on Android until Good for Enterprise comes out for WP8.
