I am just curious if anyone has seen dramatic server load spikes on enclousure URLs that are offered in a podcast? Should I be concerned about my server being hammer with traffic the minute I set up a podcast? Please let me know. Thanks!

I've found bandwidth to be a definite issue. Fortunately, I had planned ahead and found a host specically selling unlimited bandwidth for podcasts.
If your podcast gets popular, both the rss feed and media files get hammered.
