Remove URL redirect from podcast RSS feed?

Ok so here's the deal.

One of the podcasts I obsessively follow, C|Net's Buzz Out Loud, has a weird rss feed which confuses a lot of podcatchers.

The problem is that in their XML file, the link to the daily mp3 is something like this:

http://dw.com.com/redir/file.mp3?destURL=h...zOutLoud;051906

instead of just

http://podcast-files.cnet.com/podcast/cnetbuzz_051906.mp3

They've added a redirect to count hits. FireAnt struggles with it a bit, and QuickNews on my Palm forces me to open the link in a browser, which is more cumbersome than it should be.

What I want to do is create my own XML file, but without this crap.

(I want to either read the feed and strip out the redirect, or concatenate the URLs manually)

Any ideas?
