I wrote a review and "how to" for Pocket Casts in October:

I think that Music.app is aware of all audio media on the phone.

Right on! I listen to audio books that I download as podcasts. If I have to listen via the podcast app, I have to restart every time I get to a new part. Instead I put them on a playlist in itunes on my mac and sync them with my iphone, and I never have to restart. Adding this functionality in the podcast app would make a lot of sense. How do we get the word to Apple?.

I download audiobooks from iTunes. The result is they play perfectly in iTunes.
Since ios4, or thereabouts, video podcasts (The Rachel Maddow Show, for example) play in the video app.

Yes, but you have to do it through iTunes.
1) Select the podcast episodes you want to add to a playlist.
2) Select "Make MP3 copy".
3) When the copy(ies) are made, find them in your main music list and drag them to the playlist.
4) Order them in whichever way you want.
5) Sync with you device and you should see your playlist appear, complete with podcast eipsodes.
I use this method when downloading multiple recordings (which have been recorded at the same time) from DAR.fm in order to seperate out the different recordings into the correct station and play order.

30 skip is big and is 10 second backward skip. And the pain of getting a new episode is eliminated. IT was atrocious in the music app.
