Does any of these programs look good enough?

  Armangil's podcatcher is a podcast client for the command line. It
  provides several download strategies (new shows only, back-catalog
  allowed, etc), supports BitTorrent, offers cache management, and
  generates playlists for MP3 player applications.

  This application accepts one or more feeds (RSS or Atom) or
  subscription lists (OPML or iTunes PCAST) as argument, in the form of
  URLs or filenames. Alternatively, it tries to read one such document
  from the standard input.

  and handling of podcast's to your mp3 player.
