Actually, there's one big problem.  The GPL's "preferred form for modification"

Unless the creators of the podcast directly edit the MP3--which is rather
unlikely--the MP3 is not the preferred form for modification and putting the
MP3 under GPL without releasing the raw audio files grants no rights at all.
GPLing video has a similar problem.
