Chris Moyles podcast and audiences
He is number one after only ten hours which is a good pat on the back to the bbc for doing podcasts with such a popular show. i think it is a good thing. chris could use this opportinuty to be more racey as he is always very restricted in what he says on the radio so he could just talk normally without having to read out the time every other record or do traffic reports. maybe he could to a soundseing tour on a night out without editing anything. i dont know, if i was the bbc i wouldnt just copy a show onto mp3 and save it to the internet - probably better to use it to say things you cant say on the radio becuase of rules, time limits and mary whitehouse.
i looked at the bbc site and i hope they realise their audience figures are a lot more accurate...
Before podcasting - Estimated 2 million per show
After podcasting - 445,223 downloads per show
which i think would be more useful to them as it takes the guesswork out. i've got 56 listeners today which is very accurate. who are you all though? i think podcasting would be better if podcasters knew who their audiences where, that way if you wanted people to advertise then companys would part with some money. i would be willing to part with a tiny amount of persenal information like my age (like on websites) if it meant that podcasters got a little bit of money as they cant be expected to do it for free. if i had my details in itunes and it told podcasts who i was that would be useful for them to help sell the shows to big companys.
