Help: XBOX Music and Podcasts on WP8

OK I got my Lumia 920.

Question how do I get a podcast onto my phone?! When I go into my music I see there is a podcast section and a message says 'ts lonely in here. Go to the Store to add some podcasts'.

So I go to the Store under music and search for a podcast......I get zero podcasts. Cant even find the Verge or Engadget. I have read somewhere that podcasts are not listed in the store if you are outside the US.

Another issues is that XBOX music does not sync across to my phone. For example I have created multiple Smart DJ playlists on my PC and this does not appear on my Windows Phone. Am I missing something?
