iTunes ;)

However on Linux I have used hpodder in the recent past.It works, but
it doesn't have any kind of opml import/export which is annoying. I
had to script the subscription process by making lots of:-

hpodder add <rssurl>

Equally, when I stopped using hpodder I had to use sqlite3 to query
the hpodder database to get the URLs out again. Doubleplus ungood.
However for the bit in the middle, the actual downloading of podcasts,
it seems okay. I hear good things about bashpodder too, but have not
used it.

In terms of GUIs on Linux I've used Rhythmbox and Banshee in the past.
Neither was quite right for me.
