In the program window itself you can choose the podcasts that you want to download from among a wide range of content. Once you have downloaded the podcasts, you can start to listen to them in your chosen music player just by clicking on them.
You can also access the download history from the main window of the program in order to see all of the podcasts and the official web pages of the creators. All of this is available after just a few clicks.
gPodder has a somewhat outdated interface and rather limited features. However, it is very easy to use and it is comfortable to download and listen to podcasts, which makes it a program that is worth recommending.
