Keeping podcast activity synced between iPhone and iTunes. Possible to make it work?

I have an iPhone (running iOS 10) and a Mac (running 10.11.6). Latest iTunes, but have had the same issue for quite some time.

I almost solely listen to podcasts on my iPhone, but occasionally will listen on iTunes as well. iTunes can't seem to keep the status of the podcasts up to date with actual listening behavior on the phone. I have the iPhone set to backup to iCloud, and also have it set to sync with iTunes over wifi when both are in the same spot. I just manually did a wifi sync, and podcast activity still isn't showing current status in iTunes.

What am I missing? I know iTunes is a steaming pile, but I'd really value having my listening activity synced between the two. I haven't seriously considered using a 3rd party podcast app, but would probably consider it if it would be guaranteed to solve my quandary.
