It seams that there is a small misunderstanding here. The API endpoint
you are using

>    4. Trying to retrieve the episodes for each podcast using

returns the episode actions (such as play, download, etc) that you have
previously sent to the webservice using POST [1].

Currently gpodder.net doesn't have an API endpoint to retrieve a list of
episodes for your podcasts. The regular way would be to parse the
podcast feeds yourself, but you could also use our new mygpo-feedservice
[2]. If you do, please note that the API is not yet stable and might
still change in the future.
