Podboy is a podcast aggregator/player written in Python/Elementary.

Its interface aims to be easy and finger friendly.
It uses Feedparser Python module for download/parsing of podcast feeds,
Gstreamer for playing of episodes and SQLite for storing data.

It's still pretty alpha. Everything is subject to be changed, especially
the database so it is possible you should lose your podcasts and yours
settings with next releases.

It requires a very recent version of python-elementary so I think Podboy
can be run only under SHR :-(
