Unfortunately no.
Every download is already run in a wget sub-process.

Gui is not freezed during downloads, it's just very slow.
You can experienced big slowness during downloads if:
1. you use "Download all" button
2. your podcasts are stored in the SD
glamo's bus is too small to handle in the same time IO for SD and 
graphics :-(
