I also don't get the podcast directory on my 8X living in Greece, so I dunno about the UK actually. At this point I'm using a pdocast app (podcasts pro) which lets me find and download them to my phone. The only problem is that they only show up through the app once downloaded and not in the music+video hub under podcasts. They play through the phones player though and thus work in the background and all that good stuff. I haven't dug much into the app but I don't think it updates the shows I've set as favorites automatically. That means you'll have to manually download them, but you can have it d/l in the background.
I really don\t get why podcasts have to be limited to some markets, this seems like another bit of stupidity but I dunno if it's because of copyrights/licensing or just MS being slow and stupid about this.
