I subscribed directly to your feed and downloaded a couple of episodes without incident. Your episodes are coming via Google Feedproxy - this is through Feedburner so that it can track downloads - and this has been known to be flaky. I can't give you a hard-and-fast answer as to why some people are having trouble, but I would be suspicious of Feedproxy. You might want to consider stopping using it and changing to direct URLs to the media files - you could try it with your next episode as a start. If you still get problems, then the issue would seem to be with the server hosting the original files rather than Feedproxy.

Forgive my ignorance, but how would I link the RSS feed directly to the URL? Also, do you have any idea how to remove the Feedproxy? As you can see, I am not to computer literate. I also don’t understand how it could be a server issue if some people can download the episodes without any problems. Thank you for your response and future patience.

I assume that you have constructed a feed elsewhere and submitted it to Feedburner: this would have the original media file URLs. You can presumably turn off the tracking by use of Feedproxy in Feedburner, but I can't advise on specifics.
As to the actual issue, I can't see that it can be anything else than the server reacting differently to requests from different sources - or perhaps being simply intermittent - but I can't give you a technical explanation. You would need to query this with the people running the server. As I say, I had no problem with it.
