    Hey all,
    I just wanted to know if there was a way to force a check for new podcasts and download them. Often on WP8 i'll know that a new episode has been released for a podcast I subscribe to on the phone. I will go into the podcast section and it has all the old episodes. I tap on the Xbox Music Store and the new episode will be sitting right there. Back in WP7, most of the time when I did, it would trigger the phone to download the new episode automatically. This appears not to be the case in WP8. Anyone know of a way to force a check for new podcast episodes?

    It seems if I go to one of the ones I know is out there and explicitly download it, then it will go and check for all of the subscribed podcasts and pull them all down.
