Queeup, Team Boxee separated from XBMC a while ago, but that doesn't mean you can't take their content. They wanted to leave Team XBMC so bad, I say take all the content you can.

It seems actually the podcast http://www.discovery.com/radio/xml/news_video.xml and the webiste you gave offers the same content.
So I confirm it is available via the script Mediastrean v0.91 available via Installer Passion XBMC script of here: http://code.google.com/p/mediastream/downloads/list
