So, I included quite a few stats from the Pew Internet and American Life Project report about podcasting in my talk at the University of Missouri. Turns out, Jen Reeves was right when she thought their numbers were overblown. She felt (and even stated it in her talk) that Pew was factoring in music downloads and the like and not focusing on podcasts solely. What Pew forgot to tell us was that the 6 million or so listeners of podcasts they cited weren’t really podcast-only listeners. Makes it really hard to trust sources when your sources aren’t being completely honest with their data. That’s just flat out too bad. Live and learn!
