It's called Bashpodder and you can find more about it < here >.
It's ridiculously small, simple, and fun, a good example of bash scripting. Used with kcron or newOldUser's < fauxCron script >, , you can set it up to automatically download your shows.
I haven't actually tried it in dsl yet. It's possible you might need to upgrade to gnu-utils to make it work.
Posted by u2musicmike on Nov. 29 2006,04:23Bashpodder works great. I didn't use cron or anything. I just copied the three files in a directory, edited the script file to comment out a cron entry, and then I fired up the script. The links that were in the conf file really have a lot of MP3's. I had to hit contol z to stop all of the downloads. Next I edited the conf file and put in some podcast links from NPR. Now I have a whole directory to listen to while I type this.
