I don't know if I'm a late-comer to this, but I just found a little bash-script podcast catcher that might appeal to dsl users.

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.

Heavens to Murgatroid!

Bashpodder 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.

I found "BashPodder GUI", linked from the site is quite helpful for the GUI users like me.
