Obviously, a show updated in January has had more time to get listened to than, say, a show uploaded in November. Nontheless, statistics allow us to see trends that tell us what sort of topics are interesting to people and what sort of issues need more highlighting or are genuinely more difficult to convey.
Something we have noticed for instance is that environmental topics are less appreciated by our online audience than animal related topics. Within the animal related topics it becomes clear that interviews about scorpions or snakes are less listened to than interviews that involve dolphins for instance.
Another factor is obviously how active the online community is with regards to sharing content. In short, this may not be a 100% accurate projection but nontheless a vital one.
