iCloud and Podcast Subscriptions
I've been playing around with iCloud for a few days and what I've decided to do is iCloud backup as opposed to PC based iTunes backup. But I see one problem with this. What about subscribed podcasts? How do I get new podcasts automatically as they become available? If I have to sync with PC iTunes still for that it kind of defeats the purpose (for me) of iCloud backup.

Unsure how iCloud works with Podcasts, but have you tried any apps like Podcaster to manage them.
New Epioside Notifications, download or stream over wifi or 3G.
I've not used ITunes for podcasts for over 2 years and wouldn't consider going back

Podcast subscriptions-big missing piece
I also agree. I am ready to ditch the computer completely and use iCloud but am surprised they didn't think of this. I am a big podcast fan, and currently use the app "Play, Look Listen" on my iphone & ipad because I can start listening on one, and pick up where I left off on the other. But, it does not work for paid subscriptions. Being a big fan of Kim Komando, I have to do an itunes sync to get her podcast. I also like the built in player more visually-and would be so pleased to see them resolve this issue or if someone could find a workaround (not including a jailbreak option) I would love to hear it!

I just stopped using it because it won't sync subscriptions between my iPhone and iPad. And when I try
to subscribe to a certain podcast, the stupid subscribe button only shows up when it feels like.
I just stick with DownCast which uses iCloud to sync between both of my devices and works flawlessly.
