A different sort of podcast question

This one isn't about finding podcasts with good content, it's more of a technical issue.
Is there a way to get old-time radio episodes on Archive.org
to behave like podcast episodes in Downcast, the podcatcher app I use on my iPod Touch?

For example, here's the page for You Bet Your Life
. There are all sorts of files available on the page, and I'm hoping one of them is something I could subscribe to like a podcast. I tried manually subscribing to the You.Bet.Your.Life_files.xml file, but that didn't work. Downcast could subscribe to it, but then said there were no episodes available, even when I selected "view other available episodes."
I know how to import single episodes into Downcast in a pinch, but it's not ideal. I could also download the MP3s to my PC, assemble them into an Album or an Audiobook in Media Monkey and then sync them over to the iPod. I've also read a little about Huffduffer. But I have this feeling I'm missing something, that there's an easier way I'm just not seeing because I don't understand all the different sorts of files available on the Archive.org page.
