Tin Foil Hat Show - Fan Support

I'd like to make a huge call out to Bernd, a Tin Foil Hat Show listener.  He found the show notes interesting enough and made a plugin for gpodder to get the show notes out.   I want to say a few things on this and they are not in order of priority:

1.) WOW man, that is frackin' cool!  I am way impressed and good on ya!
2.) This is EXACTLY what "open source" and "community" are all about.
3.) I am moved by your engagement with the show and I hope to keep the goodness coming for as long as I have listeners like yourself.

In short, Thanks Bernd!!!  In long, Bernd, you are awesome for coding this tool and more awesome for making it available.  I hope this post makes you rock-star famous.  And how you managed to find the username "Bread" to be free, I'll never know.

Nice to read your post and I'm glad you like my work with your show notes ;-)

The main developer of gPodder mentioned a better way for this functionality on the mailing list.

So I implemented this other option and I think this is the better way.
Both scripts are available on github now. I also wrote some readme docs to explain the options a little bit. Hope it's understandable ;-)

Also I created a patch for gPodder itself to include the script in the /doc/dev/example section.
