TIL that as of August, 2022 there were over 2.8 million podcasts available online worldwide with over 135 million episodes in total.

  1. That's why I only listen to one by fans of things that are doing it for the fun/love of the subject. Otherwise it's just like listening to radio where there's 3 mins of ads every 15 mins.

  2. History that doesn't suck is really good for American history, starting with George Washington's childhood and the French and Indian war.

  3. I co-host a podcast with one of my best friends. It's a great way to have a creative outlet for me and even tho we are not popular or making money it's really fun. I'm assuming like 80% of that 2.8m figure is just people like us, having fun.

  4. What kind of stuff do you discuss? I guess what I’m trying to ask without sounding like an asshole (bc I’m genuinely curious) but how does the podcast help you creatively? Like are you a musician that discusses different music in the world and that helps you write better songs?

  5. The average podcast then has less than 50 episodes. I know of at least 3 that are in the 1000s of episodes so that is pretty bad for the others.

  6. I wonder what the average number of listeners per podcast is... how do you quantify the huge number of podcasts with very few listeners? "Half of all podcast downloads are from the most popular 0.1% of podcasts"

  7. I just wanna say that podcasts originally started as audio only for people with ipods through itunes. Why in the Kentucky fried fuck are people calling everything a podcast? Having a series on YouTube is NOT a podcast. Can we eliminate the word podcast now?
