Don't Forget iTunes!
I'm a PC user running Win XP and I use iTunes to follow the feeds:
It's easy to install and get started. Watch out, though, I recommend not having iTunes store your podcasts in the same directory as Windows Media
Player (usually "My Music"). WMP tends to "manage" the files therein and make it so iTunes can't find them.
I created a separate iTunes directory and pointed the iTunes application there, and it works fine. Another tip: I recommend not
import your music unless you're really sure you want to use iTunes for your music library. I have a huge library with a lot of WMA files, and those
can take forever to convert -- basically duplicate -- and this ends up taking up twice the hard disk space.
Other than that, though, it works fine. Although I would like to see more features, I find iTunes very handy for catching the latest podcasts.
But definitely, you DO NOT need an iPod to enjoy ATS podcasts!
Heck, I'm the first ATS Podcast Troll and I don 't even have an iPod -- yet
