A couple of things that can cause Podcasts to fail to download are if you try downloading too many at once. Okay, iTunes may only download two from the same source at any time, but if other episodes from that source are in the queue, I've known them to fail. The solution is to try them again after the others have finished downloading.
The other cause can be if your connection is too busy. Once again, for those problem episodes, try downloading just a couple, or even one at a time and while no other traffic is on your connection.
I had the same problem error [-39] when downloading a Podcast, and your suggestion seems to have done the trick.
First, under the "Downloads" window, I clicked the Allow simultaneous downloads box, turning off simultaneous downloads.
Then, I deleted the partially downloaded Podcast that gave me the error [right click< delete].
I then went back to the "Podcasts" section, clicked Refresh, and the error-ed Podcast downloaded normaly, with no problems.
I should not have a "busy connection" since I have broadband, but this does appear to be the solution.
