That's the way I like to do things, but in this case there aren't podcasts for every show.

'mencoder' didn't seem to understand *.m3u playlists, but 'mplayer' did,
and it can record (maybe via 'mencoder'). The magic line seems to be:
mplayer -playlist WHEREVER.m3u -endpos HOWLONG -ao pcm:file=WHATEVER.wav -vc dummy -vo nul
(The last few options are what I've used to copy tracks off my CDs. I don't remember what they mean.)
I set it up to run with 'kcron' and it worked nicely!
