Where are my podcast files backed up?

So I got a new Macbook for Christmas and prior to that, I backed up all everything in my iTunes folder from my old PC to my web server so I could just transfer everything over. I have all of my apps and music transferred to the new Mac, but I cant seem to find my old podcasts. Some of my podcasts were premium content that I had to pay for, so I would really like to find out where they are.
These are the files I have:

Temp File 1.tmp
Temp File.tmp
iTunes Library Extras.itdb
iTunes Library Genius.itdb
iTunes Library.itl
iTunes Music Libary.xml

I have all of these files with the exception of the Temp files within my iTunes folder in Finder, but yet none of my old podcasts will show up in iTunes.

Is there a way to retrieve these old podcast files, or am I just SOL?

Under your "iTunes Music" folder, there should be a "Podcast" folder.

Your Podcasts should be inside this folder.

Hmmm, for some reason that folder never got transferred onto my server, so I guess I am SOL now. Thanks anyway

Have you tried to search the HD for the Podcast by the actual file name?

You may have had them stored somewhere else.
