Notes on podcast & blog

– A greater and greater portion of the traffic on this weblog is mobile (about 60% now). That’s why I redesigned it a while back. This mobile traffic is clearly driven by Indian traffic, which is overwhelmingly mobile.

– There has been a major dropoff in positive reviews on Apple Podcasts and Stitcher. Please leave some positive reviews.

– The downloads are about 50% American (USA). About 10% from India. The balance is other nations.

– I’m still doing all the editing, which is one reason the sound quality is…variable. If you want that to change, you probably should become a patron. Once we hit around $200/month I think we can afford an editor I know who does good work (she edits The Insight). Right now it is costing me $40 a month to host the podcasts and get a good Zencastr account.

But really the opportunity cost of time is the major issue for me. I enjoy recording podcasts. I generally am ambivalent about editing (it’s kind of interesting to listen, but I have to focus on other things besides content).

– This weblog now regularly gets more traffic than my primary weblog, Gene Expression.
