Windows And Podcasts

I have windows7 on my p.c., and an internet connection. Can I download podcasts, or do I need an apple i-device for that? And if I am able to download them, will my P.C. be able to play them?
Have a wonderful day, evening or night. Depending on when you read this.

gPodder is a podcatcher that works very well.

Winamp is a podcatcher and audio media player.

Windows media player also plays.

Sure you can, iTunes for Windows is free and works just fine for me.
