You can use mplayer to dump the stream through the repeat here:
It is currently on week 2 but will change to the week 3 episode on 
Friday (I believe).

For the real file:
mplayer -dumpfile hitchikers.ra -dumpstream  

Straight to wav:
mplayer -quiet -ao pcm -aofile hitchiker.wav -vo null -vc dummy 

You will require the real codecs that are available from the mplayer
