Are we going to have the abilty to sync podcasts like we do music so we can listen when we don't have access to online content?
In a future update, yes.
This has literally been asked and answered in tens of other threads - did you look at any of them before making a new one?
It’s a reasonable question though - and was also going to be my first post on the subject. I know it’s in beta, but it seems utterly insane to release podcasts without them being supported for syncing, which has to be the absolute primary use-case.
It is a reasonable question (and reasonable to assume you might not be the only person to want to ask the question), just as it would be reasonable to skim the existing posts for your answer before asking the question.
