Mid-2013 Statistics Review

Jun 242013

I’m long overdue for a report on my podcast statistics… and I’m happy to report that my audience continues to grow at a lovely pace.

Let’s start with the stats from BlogTalkRadio, which hosts my live show and its own archive. Often, they promote my show, resulting in good to amazing numbers of listens. The best ever was just last week: Sunday’s Q&A has been heard over 22,000 times on BlogTalkRadio. I love to imagine that many people in a room, listening to me. YOWZA!

Here are the stats for some recent episodes:

Here are the stats, broken down by month, for all my time on BlogTalkRadio. I’ve had over 90,000 listens so far in 2013. That’s not too shabby!

Not all those listens via BlogTalkRadio are sticky — meaning that people return for more. Yet some of them are, as can be seen in the growth of people listening to the podcasts hosted on Podbean. (The podcast files hosted on Podbean are used by my web archive and RSS feeds, including iTunes.)

So far in June, I have 19,171 downloads from Podbean. Here’s the breakdown by day. I’m happy about those two nearly-2000 days, but I want to see lots more of them!

Here’s the stats for 2013 so far from Podbean, broken down by month. It looks to be just under 120,000 downloads so far. Plus, June will probably be my best month ever. Not too shabby!

Even better, here are the stats from all time: 366,909 downloads of all my podcasts. I’m particularly enthused to see that I’ll surely surpass my downloads for the whole of 2012 in July of 2013. That means that 2013 will be a darn good year!

For all that… thank you, thank you to my generous contributors! With your support, I’ve reached thousands of people — and I’ll reach ever more in the months ahead. Already, I’ve done so much more than I ever could have done as a philosophy professor in a traditional academic environment. That’s just one of many reasons why I’m glad to be carving out my own path as an intellectual entrepreneur!
