Ok, so the only way around this oversight is to download the podcasts on you desktop itunes. Then convert to ACC which will put it in you music files. Sync then create your playlist on the device.

The main way to ensure podcast playlist functionality is retained is to delete the Podcasts app. Podcasts will return to the Music app as they did before. You will need to reboot your phone.
