Traffic analysis
Numbers like this, always make me look for patterns. For example, are the jumps in downloads due to the title of the podcast? Examples like the jump between episodes 2 and 3, are probably this type of jump. But if there is word of mouth about the last podcast, then the next one might be jumping because of that, jumps like the one between 7 and 8 are probably of this type. (Of course, this is disregarding things like "On the 15th I got more exposure due to a mention in magazine X," which has to account for the jump between 15 and 16.)

Also, the nature of the podcast is strange. One would think it should cause more hits on the casts relating to intertests. As you draw more listeners, you'd think they'd go back to hear casts on their pet topics, but it doesn't seem to be true given the numbers. I mean, of the 124 downloads for episode 16, (Sudden Death) only some fraction of 16 of those found episode 9 (Atheism) worth listening to?

From this result, I would postulate one of two things, 1) The audience only cares for the new casts, being gen Z types, if it's older than 15 minutes, it's ancient. or b) whatever portal they hit the casts from doesn't have a significant one-stop link to the archives.

Anyhow, what this does make me want to do, is go back and listen!

Re: Traffic analysis
Hey S,

Yeah, I find the disparity in downloads a little odd as well. Now, the stat's I've posted here represent downloads in the last 30 days, so I think what we're seeing between episodes 15 and 16 is that on episodes 16 and up we're seeing total number of downloads, and on 15 and down, we don't see the downloads of the folks who grabbed the file when it was first posted.

I'd love to get your feedback on any of the earlier shows.

Stay well.

Let me know if you ever get full transcripts available - I have trouble finding time to listen to the podcasts but would love to read them!

full transcripts
It will probably be quite some time before these podcasts get transcribed... probably about the time that a free software application can do the job with an acceptable level of accuracy. Or if some publisher wanted to pay an editor to do the transcriptions and then fashion them into a book. I could certainly go for that.
