And HUNDREDS more great reviews like the ones above
BashPodder Was written and is maintained here by me (Linc) with the generous code contributions and great ideas of many of its users, some of whom have contributed modified scripts of their own. BashPodder is currently licensed under the GPL. BashPodder was written to be small and fast, and most importantly, to conform to the KISS rule (Keep It Simple Stupid). That way, anyone can add to and detract from the script to suit their own needs (and they are welcome to do so). BashPodder is listed in many places as a "Linux" podcatching client, and in fact, that is what I wrote it for initially, however, it should be noted that I have dozens of emails telling me how well it works on everything else, including but not limited to MaxOSX, Solaris, AIX, Net Open and FreeBSD, even windows and many other OS's I have forgotten I am sure.

Bashpodder requires you have bash (but I have heard it runs fine under korn as well), wget and sed.
As a bare minimum, you'll need the following three files: - The main program
parse_enclosure.xsl - xsl style sheet to grab enclosure info
bp.conf - The example podcast config list (containing some of my personal favorites)
