Apple Podcast app won't display past episodes of The Rachel Maddow Show. Does anybody know why you can only listen to the episode from the last day, and then it disappears?

Same here! Older episodes don't necessarily disappear as soon as new ones come in; sometimes I have a few episodes on the iPhone, and can listen to them normally. But then I'll look later, and all but the latest will have disappeared. I'll have to start paying attention to discover what triggers the wipe; my guess is that syncing with iTunes does it, but I don't know yet.
Whatever the cause, it's odd. I thought that perhaps queued episodes would stick around if I partially listened to them (thus ensuring that they get actually downloaded, I'd think), but partially-viewed episodes and unviewed episodes both disappear. I can understand that an episode that never got downloaded might become unavailable after a day or few, but why would one already downloaded get automatically erased?
It's also worth noting that I don't have the problem in iTunes on the Mac. Episodes there stick around in the normal fashion. The problem is just on my iPhone, and just with this one podcast.
If anyone knows what's up, please tell!
