[PLUG] Stump the Chumps

Despite being on twice over the weekend, I routinely miss Car Talk.  There is 
a podcast for it, but it doesn't work as well as it should.  Somehow their 
online player doesn't seem to work with any Linux browser, but this can be 
circumvented with cleverness and sed.  For anyone interested, here is a script 
to get the latest episode as an mp3.  It could also be extended to grab any 
episode, but I haven't bothered to do that.

Note: This script is a reimplementation of a much cruder script from the 
LongTail Video BTS.
