Update subscriptions which have expired by virtue of being ignored for five or more days

iTunes will stop updating a podcast if you have not listened to at least one of its episodes in five days. This script will batch-update every podcast subscription so you don't have to manually update each one individually.

I have posted instructions on how to create a launchd agent to run this script automatically and invisibly in the background to ensure that your Podcasts are always updated.
