I just want the .mp3 file. I don't want any of the other crap that comes included. I intend to just listen to this on a burned audio cd in the car.



Edit: Even better if I don't have to download any software at all. I just want the MP3 files in a simple list.


There are direct links to the mp3s in the RSS feed.

For a general way to get a podcast's RSS feed, please check the following superuser question: Get RSS feed from iTunes podcast links

  • This doesn't really work for generic iTunes podcasts, just this example. Aug 5 '13 at 17:56
  • From my experience, many podcasts offer an RSS feed on their websites, but you are totally right in pointing out that this doesn't apply to all.

  • I've just edited my question to make it more general, hope that helps.

  • Note: Works on Firefox, but somehow not on Chrome (shows up as a bunch of html code).

This is how I got it (so you can try it yourself):

  1. I Googled Stuff You Should Know RSS Feed and chose the first result.
  2. In Firefox, IE, or Safari (basically anything but Chrome), you can scroll through the list and pick and choose the ones you want. To download one, just do a Right Click->Save As. Thanks for introducing me to a great podcast, by the way :-).
  • or add the RSS link to your feed reader (e.g. Google Reader) and then download from there.

  • Not too convenient though, when you only want to download one episode. But duly noted.

I just used this: http://podbay.fm/. You can listen online or download - pretty impressed with it TBH!

  • @ChrisF OK, I didn't realise that, thanks! Not sure why my answer's being downvoted though. Podbay is a nice website with podcasts you can download... Jun 4 '15 at 14:30

You can get the RSS feed of an iTunes podcast using an online tool, from there you can extract mp3 urls:
