Podcasts don't update with XBox Music on WP8

Hey everyone,

Got a Lumia 520 about a month ago and loving it. One big issue though - the podcast functionality of XBox Music seems to be broken. I was really excited to see that all of my favorite NPR podcasts were listed, but they do not update automatically when I tell it to. Also, the directories are much slower to update than, say, iTunes. Like for example I listen to one particular podcast that comes out every day at 7pm. iTunes has it right away, but the Microsoft store doesn't seem to list it for hours, or sometimes not until the next day!

Any workaround for this? Or perhaps a recommendation for a better podcast app? Thanks in advance!
