You guys were talking about using bittorrent sync to transfer episodes.
Bitlove.org offers a service that automatically creates .torrent files with webseeds for podcast rss feeds.
I use it on my site music.the-erm.com and it has a js script that works with wordpress that will create button/link to download the .torrent file. As I recall they had an API that could be used to create your own if not.
If you need a php script that has download resume capabilities with a bandwidth limiter I have one of those. Just email me and let me know. I'll send it to you.
Also I think bittorrent sync recently added versioning with 1.1.27 (but their faq isn't updated so I might be mistaken I seem to remember it in the release notes, but I can't seem to find them on the site.)

I really like the updates!
The changes to the hacker public radio website are going great, in my opinion, as is the new scheduling system.
As self-appointed Minister of Opus Codec Advocacy, if you can't justify adding a fourth feed, I'd suggest polling the speex users (perhaps prepend a short recorded message to the .spx feed episodes for a while?) to find out if any of them can NOT handle .opus as well. (Opus' support is already more widespread than speex's is.) If there are no objections, I would suggest replacing the ~28kbps .spx feed with opus encoded at "--bitrate 20". This looks like it should be roughly a high enough bitrate that speech quality should be outstanding, while leaving enough bitrate for the possibility for the opus encoder to switch to MDCT mode ("CELT") when it detects non-speech sounds occasionally.
The quality should remain the same or probably even better, while reducing the file downloads by an average of around 25%-30% more beyond what speex already gets it down to.
Also too, sorry for missing the show recording. We're starting to hit our "busy season" here.
