lol. don't shoot me- I'm just the messenger. I agree with everyone that a dedicated server is most likely needed here and I will relay that message to my friend. but still want recommendations. thanks again, guys.
You may also find it beneficial to get a dedicated server due to the nature of podcast downloads and the common policies on shared hosts. Once the new podcast is released there's usually a huge spike in requests and bandwidth. This is assuming the podcast is popular, though at a 1TB/m traffic criteria I would say its safe to assume it is popular to some degree or another.
