that is step 1 and that is the easy part.

i think the problem here is that i would be trying to do an AJAX request across domains -- this is impossible to do.
so a proxy script must be setup.. but I am unsure how to do this.
can someone help?

SimplePie Live! (http://live.simplepie.org) was designed exactly for this purpose... mostly. It is a web service that fetches and parses feeds on the server side using SimplePie, and it returns a JSON object that you can use in your pages. It'd be up to you to take the data and give it a display, but all-in-all, it takes care of it all.
