gPodder is a simple, free opensource software (licensed under GPLv3) to download free audio and video content (“podcasts”) from the Internet and watch it on your computer or on the go on your mobile or iPod. gPodder can support feeds from RSS, Atom and Youtube. gPodder is available in most Linux distributions, FreeBSD, Windows and on Maemo-based devices and supports iPod, MP3 player and mobile phones (e.g. Nokia N800 and N810). The user interfaces supported on gPodder are GTK+, Maemo 4, Maemo 5 and CLI.

In order to use gPodder with your iPod, you need to Jailbreak it due to the restrictions set by Apple.
