iOS Download + Organize work around

For Windows users at least:

On your computer via iTunes subscribe to podcast. In the settings for the podcasts, turn the episode limit to none. You should have all 111 episodes in library (though they will not be downloaded to computer). Then sync your iphone with podcast app installed. Podcasts should automatically download to phone at this step.

To see them mostly organized, view them through "Episodes" or "Downloaded Episodes" tab, and click Sort -> By title.

Terribly Organized, but Good content

Too many 1.2.3 videos that are 7 mins long and are unsorted. Therefore, instead of a clearly defined 1 hour episodes from 1-100, you get 7 mins episodes that are like this:
1.3.1
2.4.1
1.1.1
3.2.1
1.1.2

There is no logical option to sort these and play them as they should, like this:
1.1.1
1.1.2
1.3.1
2.4.1
3.2.1

I had to take a screenshot of the playlist on iTunes via PC and use this as a reminder of which video to watch next.

Terribly organized, yet good content.
