I have iTunes and have never bought anything there. I use it just for downloading free stuff.
As far as good knitting podcasts go, there's Cast-on with Brenda Dayne, Knit Science with Miriam Quinn, Let's Knit 2together (videocast with Cat), Yarn Thing with Marly.
I'm sure there are others, but most of them are found on iTunes.
You might try the Podbean site for an alternative to iTunes.
BTW, I can't use iTunes to download to my MP3 player. I have Rhapsody for that, but you can also use the Media Center that comes with Windows.
