On my Linux box, I use Podracer for downloading the podcasts and vidcasts
I see there is a newer release than I'm using (1.2 vs 1.3).

I applied a trivial patch to it (that I keep meaning to forward) to make it
trigger an external script when it finishes downloading a file, which
filters the file based on extension and does something with it (currently
transcodes to a mobile-phone friendly file and sends to me via e-mail, but
it could be set to update Myth's database instead).

You could look into that.
