You can get the size down to 25mb by removing unnecessary locales files and applying upx compression onto the "bin" folder.
One thing to keep in mind: this one does not include a player, but you can define your preferred audio/video player in settings.
Also I'd appreciate if someone would test this on Windows 7 and report back so we can update the entry.

I can confirm that it works on Win7 64bit.

Podcast listings are primarily software related, but if you have been to Youtube and liked just one channel, type in the name of the channel in the Youtube tab and subscribe. You will suddenly have a very good reason to have a podcast tool: this downloads quickly in the background and in high quality.

Just fantastic -- I've been waiting for this for a long time both because its a portable RSS/podcasting tool as well as one I'll actually use.

why is it sooooooooooooo slow?

Looks very nice, exactly what I expect from a portable podcatcher. Allmost perfect, but just one thing:

Why can't I set the language to English? I know Dutch but I prefer English. The Dutch translation is far from complete and what has been translated is.. well not what I want..

this annoys me 'very' much

removebrain: Click the edit config button. Find the Download Dir entry. Click on it and substitute your preferred path.

Woops, I see that changing it in the config file does not actually work, even after restarting the program.

PortableApps hosts v2.20, the official website v3.0.1. Is there a reason for this great discrepancy?

V2.16

now the way to change the download directory:

edit the gPodderPortable.ini file within the App\AppInfo\Launcher directory and change the GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=%PAL:DataDir%\config\Downloads line to something else. But it would be reset on each upgrade.

from a thread in the PortableApps forum

seems to work.

v3.1.2

Last edit today 9/13/13 added the category = Internet - Podcast Managers
Hopefully other entries could be added including those already listed @TPFC like Gpodder.

v3.5.1

Anyone unable to download soundcloud should know that this is is a known issue: https://github.com/gpodder/gpodder/issues/235
