Automatically - set to 90 minutes, but I don't always keep it running.

20 audio

Export using mp3 sync with "delete after sync" - I always listen to them
only on my mp3 player.

Yes, with my Nokia phone (OggPlay) - I remove the SD card and sync to that.

I have a gpodder-add.sh script that I use to add feeds from firefox
(just runs 'gpodder -a "$@"')

I also have a script that I run to create m3u files that I run after I
sync to my mp3 player.

Lastly, because my mp3 player does strange things with mp3 files that
are too long, sometimes I have to use mp3splt on really long episodes.

No, or at least not recently.

My player supports ogg.

-Sometimes I start a second instance when I forget that I have gPodder
minimized to the tray - it would be nice to either not allow this, or
pop-up the existing window.
-Some podcasts I listen to are online classes, for these it would be
nice if gPodder could download the oldest episodes first.
-I have had to delete feedcache.db a few times due to corruption.
