It's been a while since I used podiobooks, but IIRC you can set it to
release all chapters 'now' and it gives you an rss feed with all the
chapters as enclosures. You could use this in any podcatching
software, or parse the feed manually if that's your bag! Should be
simpler than spidering the site using wget?
