It is possible to switch gPodder to any Gtk3-compatible theme by copying it to C:\Users\YOUR_USER.themes and referencing it by name in GPODDER_INSTALL_DIR\etc\gtk-3.0\settings.ini.
For instance, to use the low contrast theme Equilux:
C:\gpodder-3.10.3-portable\data\etc\gtk-3.0\settings.inito look like this:
[Settings] gtk-font-name = Segoe UI 10 gtk-theme-name = Equilux-compact
