Geek News Central Podcast Consumption Report

I was shocked tonight when I was looking at some of my podcast consumption data. While the below screen shot is only a small part of our podcast statistic service I am seeing some amazing trends in just how people are downloading and consuming my show.

How my listeners are downloading and listening to my show is a radical change from just one year ago! I will let you digest it yourself, but the most remarkable thing I am seeing in this report is how blackberry downloads has exploded onto the charts who would have thought.

Note: The following data was a snapshot of Geek News Central Podcast consumption for July 2009 percentages are accurate within 0.25% and are compiled with the free Podcast Statistics my company makes available to podcasters worldwide.
