Just configure Gpodder so that it opens a terminal window with mplayer in
it, is that a problem?

If you absolutely need to open a video window for playing a file that has
no video, your best bet is probably to actually play some generic video
file (or even a static picture) and append your audio file as an external
audio track, but I don't think you'll be able to do that in Gpodder unless
you write a script.
