I try to play around with podcast feeds, actually was hoping to generate the link for me to download the media from podcast.
Either way I found this open source library. Which is fun to use.
I just skip the installation step, you can get it from the repository if you're a linux user.
To use the universal feed parser, in the shell
>>>d=feedparser.parse("source of rss")
what you get is a dictionary of data from the rss. More on how to use it here
