Do you have a backup that contains your home folder?

Would that be the right one?
Yes, if it contains a file named "gpodder.conf" - check if it does. If so, copy the files "gpodder.conf" and "database.sqlite" from the backup somewhere onto your computer. We can then go forward to the next step

Am using Mac os if that could be any hinderance, i do have access to remote desktop running windows though.
Yes, you can temporarily set Finder to show hidden files - there should be a folder ".config" (the dot makes it hidden on Unix-ish systems like Linux or OS X) somewhere in which there then is a folder named "gpodder" and in there you will find those files.

Have just run a new backup (with gpodder installed as it is now) to see if there are any gpodder referenced files in there but still no joy
In that case, I'm afraid but the database cannot be recreated automatically without a database backup. In future gPodder versions, the database will be stored in MyDocs alongside the podcasts, so that problem should happen less often.

You can (in current versions) already use the 'gpodder-backup' utility to backup your database for later restoring.
