    I love the new feature in Listen that allows it to sync with Reader to manage podcast subscriptions...or at least I love the idea of it. Since updating Listen and using it for many days now, I have seen nothing regarding my podcast subscriptions popping up in my Reader account. How can I fix this? Is there something I'm missing?

    Crap. Maybe I'll just uninstall and reinstall.

    In Google Reader I created a folder called "Listen Subscriptions" , moved my podcast ones over to there and now they pop up in the Listen app. :eek:

    So it doesn't automatically populate them in Reader?

    My subscriptions in Listen were automatically added to the "Listen Subscriptions" folder in Google Reader. I've also added things to Reader and they showed up after a manual refresh in Listen. Pretty sweet. I hope an uninstall and re-install cycle helps your issue.

    It's suppose to be automatic but some people have had probs, other folks been complaining about it on the Google labs forum.

    Are you using your Google Apps account on your phone? I am & I'm also not getting any synching of podcasts from Listen to Google Reader, I guess because Google Reader doesn't "exist" for a Apps account.

    Just created the "Listen Subscriptions" (Without quotes) folder within Google reader and put your podcast links in there. Listen will find them straight away.

    For me, capitalizing listen and subscriptions in the folder name was what I missed initially. Works now.
