Do you know how to make a ZIP archive? If so, make a ZIP containing both the ".aup" file and the "_data" folder. Upload the ZIP file to somewhere that I can access it (for example, share it via dropbox or Google Drive or similar).
I'm thinking that there may be an error in the data - if there is then I should be able to reproduce the problem here, and hopefully recover most of the project.

While you are building that zip archive, here's a couple of thoughts; sorry if they've been mentioned before:

1) Try your export with no special characters in the name, e.g., "xyz"
2) Try saving a smaller version of the file, with just say 1 second of audio. (Export Select)
3) For additional thoughts see here: viewtopic.php?p=380956

You need to make the file available to anyone with the link. Currently it can't be downloaded.

I've downloaded the AUP and _data folder.
The project opened successfully, and here it is playing:

Perhaps worth doing a health check on your computer disk. Is it a hdd, SSD or something else?

Awesome! I will say that I had no issue with it playing. I was just having trouble exporting it..

and I'm using an HDD

Can you export this file so I can upload this episode on my podcast, please?

There was some data corruption in track 3 somewhere around 2:30. I had to remove a short section from that track to be able to export a mix.
I've uploaded the export here (mind the adverts, it's an ad supported service) https://www.sendspace.com/file/06h3c3
16-bit WAV format, 112.91MB
