Couldn't play media file -- 404 forbidden

I'm having a slight issue with streaming my audio content to the wix platform. I recently uploaded a new podcast episode to my soundcloud account, and pushed it to my RSS Feed, which I'm linking to my wix website;

When I try to load the page for my latest episode (linked here) the audio file loads fine on the first viewing -- but on any subsequent loads a few things are happening.

  1. The play-bar is replaced with the words "could not play media file"
  2. By loading the web-page, soundcloud is registering a 'play' of the episode
  3. Clicking download takes me to a forbidden page.
On the soundcloud side, I've enabled RSS inclusion, and episode download. I've replaced the file about 10 times already, and tried different types of exports from my audio editing suite. Each attempt has yielded the same result. First play it loads audio, then any additional plays it fails to load, BUT still registers a play on my soundcloud statistics.

Before I begin bugging Wix, and my ISP to check for connection issues, I wanted to confirm that I didn't mess up any settings on the soundcloud end of things.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
