List of links?

I'm looking for a sniffer, but one that only reports links that are accessed behind the curtain, and not a true packet analyzer.

Warning, I know enough to be dangerous, but I'm not an expert in this area.
First, some background. I can't stand listening to podcasts on the web and I'm always looking to get direct links so I can listen to them in my various mp3 players. Most of the time I'm successful using my browser's cache to get the links, but sometimes they use too much web mumbo jumbo to hide the links.
I'm looking for software that will catalog every connection my browser makes in text output. That way, buried in there (hopefully) will be the direct links to the files.
This really simplified example shows the kind of output I'm looking for. Basically, on my end, let's say I visit IMDB.COM and click on PODCAST, and then click on PLAY. I would hope to get output like this:
So it reports every link the browser made to load the page and the ads. Then when I clicked on the podcast page, ran the flash player, and it connected to the mp3 file, my (imaginary?) software recorded the link that was made.
Does it exist?
