I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaI9GwPKXkE that shows how to remove the podcast app and put podcasts back into the music app. I did it and it worked, BUT...I had to reboot my iPod touch as the final step (not mentioned in the video). I manually sync my paid podcasts via iTunes, so no idea how well it works with wireless sync etc. I no longer get the "Unable to Authorize" message, and the music app works much better than the podcast app.

This worked! I had to do it twice, but I got my podcasts back into my music app. Thanks for finding it!

I'll be damned! It worked like a charm!

What worked for me in the new Podcast App was going to the website of the podcast [pardcast.com] in Safari on my iPod touch, logging in, and manually subscribing (or 'viewing,' in my case, since ive already paid for them all) to each video season through the video RSS Feed. They show up in the Podcast App and you can stream them with WiFi, so i have 75gb of streamable paid video podcasts on my 8gb iPod Touch, assuming I have WiFi when wanting to watch any of these. I don't know how an iPhone works but maybe the same idea would be successful, but also be available all the time. Or just go to Starbucks and McDonalds more. The only problem for me is that I can't get the audio feeds to be available on WiFi.

Thank you so much for this link! I'm so grateful as it has also helped me to add paid audiobooks back on my iPhone 5. The same rules apply.

I tried it and it worked on the second try. Hooray, I can listen to my Coast to Coast podcast again! They have an iPhone app that works on an iPod touch, but only in a wifi area. So often that isn't the case and I rely on my regular podcast most of the time. My endless thanks to iPodTouchBob!

For anyone else looking into this, I found a way to get a paid podcast syscing in the app. works really well with my coast to coast am subscription. In itunes, go file -> add new podcast. This pops up a window where you can type in the url. Paste the url into the window, replaceing the itpc:// with . In the url, add your login info like this:
if your user name is an email address, replace the @ with the url code like this:
This will add the podcast to itunes, with no need to ever sign into it again. plug in your iphone/ipod and sync 1 episode to your device so that it shows up in your podcast list on the device. It will now behave exactly the same as any other free podcast within the app.

In a pinch, you can do the same thing in the mobile podcast app if you enter the url, including name and password prefix as above, in the "Search My Podcasts" field.
