Podcast subscriptions allow you to enjoy watching episodes of audio files and can be added to any news aggregator or feed reader to get notifications about new releases. While there are various podcast managers you can try out on Windows (starting with iTunes, of course), a more simple way to download podcasts is more than welcome. That is where Vov Podcast Downloader comes in.

With an extremely light footprint on the host system, this particular application parses lists of podcasts and allows you to download content to your PC. The media can be then loaded using a compatible player.

Vov Podcast Downloader comes with a predefined list of podcasts you can explore. Obviously, you can enrich this list with your podcasts as adding new podcast feeds is also possible. Moreover, any podcast you don't like can be removed from your list with a few clicks.

Clicking on any of the podcasts reveals all the episodes you can download, the majority in MP3 format. You might be confused because no "Download" or "Start" button is available, but double-clicking on a link is the way to initiate a download.

Vov Podcast Downloader creates a folder in its installation directory and sends all the downloaded episodes there. You have no option to change the download target, which means you will have to settle for the default option.

Vov Podcast Downloader is easy to work with and requires no prior computer knowledge. It enables you to download podcasts easily. On the downside, it features no alerting system to let you know when a podcast feed is updated with new episodes. In other words, it would come in handy to also have monitoring capabilities.
