With an alt caption.
Yes, that's exactly what I found. There seem to be two players, one for
listening live and the other for the archived audio. If you look at other
programs like Hot Jazz, you'll see a link to play the current episode
which opens their standard audio player. From there, looking at the
source of the audio player eventually leads to a link you can use for
downloading. That doesn't seem to be the case here. According to the
main program page for the Big Broadcast, I should just be able to go to
any archived program and there should be a way to play it. I know that
archived programs on the web go back to at least 2011 and the downloads on
their server go back further. It seems to be that one date (2013-05-12)
which I can't seem to find.

No, it's a local show on WAMU only. They have online archives, but no
podcasts. Believe me, I would rather download podcasts anyway because
that's much easier, but no luck.
