If there is a way of doing it I am sure Vangelis will find one.  In the 
meantime I was wondering whether was an option like --version original but I 
don't think there is.  What I did spot was that according to
under Search Options, podcast is a type.  If you have specified
--type radio
and are getting a podcast that would appear to be a bug.  Could it be you 
have specified --type all?
