gPodder's no plodder when it comes to podcasts

Catch all of your podcasts in style with gPodder, a Python application designed to retrieve and organize your podcasts for easy playback.

gPodder can handle both RSS 2.0 and Atom podcast feeds. As soon as you add episodes to the podcatcher, the application can download them using a few different protocols, including authenticated HTTP (for feeds that require a password) and BitTorrent. BitTorrent is especially nice for popular podcasts that have a lot of subscribers and large episodes, because you can use it to download from multiple sources, called seeds, and speed up your downloads.
