You could go the route of loading the response into an XDocument or XmlReader and parsing out what you need manually. Bu a better approach would be to use an RSS parser meant for the job.

This is a good example of how to parse RSS feeds, you should be able to extract the required values easily using this: http://www.shrinkrays.net/code-snippets/csharp/simplified-csharp-atom-and-rss-feed-parser.aspx. There are also links to other feebie RSS parsers if this simple one does not cater for your needs.
