Basically I want to download a bunch of old episodes of podcasts and stuff just because I like having a lot of things to listen to at any point. I've tried a few things in the past such as gPodder but not had much luck.
Downloaded iTunes today and that's even worse. 8mbps max download speed which is 1/15 of what my internet is capable of... pathetic really. 10 years ago that'd have been just about acceptable but not now, not by a long shot. Was thinking of getting an iPad recently but if those are the speeds I'm going to get from that then forget it, but enough about that, this isn't an "apple sucks" thread!
So any other suggests for decent podcast downloaders? I don't intend to play them through the program just use it to download episodes. Or ideally any suggestions on how to make iTunes actually download at a decent speed.
