They're called podcatchers, or equivalently, podcast aggregators.

I've heard of podracer, but I haven't used it.
The homepage is here: http://podracer.sourceforge.net/.
It is a bash shell script. It will probably work fine with your shell
account, if all of the tools that it uses are available.
There are a few other command-line podcast clients out there. I use
something called hpodder. I won't recommend it to you, because it is
non-trivial to install manually. That's probably how you'd have to install
it on a service like shellworld.

I have no idea. Perhaps you could cajole podracer into running under
djgpp? That is pure speculation on my part.
