    comand line podcast aggregator?

    I have a 8.10 box downstairs that is being used to download, store, serve, and play various types of media. I would like to use ssh (or a web based GUI) to control and configure some kind of podcast aggregator. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    What makes a great open source contributor is not primarily the brilliance of their ideas or importance of their bug, but rather their willingness to see it through to success.

    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 is very much a DIY project; there's no man page or documentation of any kind. There's isn't even a formal tar.gz source file. It requires that you have the bash shell, sed, and wget, which are all universal on Linux, plus xsltproc , a tool that applies XSLT stylesheets to XML documents from the command line.

    . . . . and do a "touch /home/bruno/BashPodder/podcast.log" to avoid the error message saying that it can not find the log file
    The following directions tell you how to set up scheduled tasks the traditional way using the command line, but it is much easier to use the Gnome Scheduled tasks tool in System --> Preferences
