      yep, even with the latest (41512) 2.5.x podcasts can't handle uploads
      containing filesystem-unfriendly characters (notably spaces, but
      parens, slashes and the like would give it conniptions as well, but
      that's just a guess)...

      jira is a little, um, unresponsive at the moment, so i'll check later
      to see if this has been reported already, but i'd say it's confirmed:
      filenames WITHOUT spaces work fine in the podcast tool (uploading and
      downloading), whereas filenames WITH spaces are properly uploaded but
      404-not-found when trying to download via podcast tool. (resources
      work just fine, tho).
