After years of testing I (again!) realized that easiest/smoothest/most reliable way to download a podcast is to use RSS feed and uTorrent.
Unfortunately, not all shows offer such feed. Long time ago I created a small project that transformed RSS feeds of Pwop productions shows HanselMinutes, .NET Rocks and Mondays from MP3 to AAC (Mb4, iPod), which are my preferred format for listening.
Even after two years, then RSS torrent feeds are not available for every Carl Franklin and the gang show, so I rewrote the program and added new RunAs Radio show and here are new feeds:
If you need instructions on how to use uTorrent to download podcasts, please see the original post from two years ago. Nothing really changed.
