Lazy web: Podcast Scraper for XBMC?

I spent a good amount of time today sorting out my movie library in XBMC using the IMDB scraper. I need to do my TV programmes soon too but I've been thinking why isn't there already a scraper for Podcasts? There's already scrapers for all types of mainstream movies, adult movies, pop videos, tv programmes and regional films, but not podcasts. Whats weird is that podcasts have most of the information in one place anyway, so it should be trivial to get the info.

So although this is lazy web request, looking at the XBMC scraper page it seems it wouldn't take a lot to create the basic scraper. I just need to get better at writing regular expressions, I guess.
