Here's what Podax does with the permissions that it requests:
Internet: Updates subscriptions and downloads podcasts
Write to external storage: Stores downloaded podcasts and subscription images
Get and use accounts: Podax can import subscriptions from Google Reader - great for Google Listen users
Read phone state: Pauses the podcast when you're on the phone
Access network state: Gives you the option to only download podcasts while you're on Wi-Fi to avoid using all of your data
Boot notification: Sets up the updater and downloader when the phone starts so you don't open Podax after rebooting to find out that it didn't update in a while
