Surrender to the Pod

So I found out this morning that one of my favorite public radio stations (KCRW) is podcasting a show by one of my favorite people (Harry Shearer). I've got a MP3 player because, duh, I'm a walking cliche of my demographic - I don't eat red meat, I work in technology, I'm blue state, blah blah blah. Anyway, here's what I'm wondering and here's what I think you at Hard to Get know:

What software should I download to start carrying Harry Shearer around with me on my neighborhood walk?

Also, if This American Life starts podcasting, I will just die of joy.

Dunno the software to download, evidently NPR stuff just shows up on iTunes & you get it just like you'd get any song.

TAL podcasting... I would love that...

I've been reading good reviews of the Radio Shark http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/radioshark/index.php

The shorthand description is Like Tivo For Radio. It's an antenna that plugs into a USB port and it will record radio shows; useful for stuff like TAL that isn't podcasted but is broadcasted.

I haven't used one and I don't know anyone personally who has one but it seems like this would do the trick.
