1 MILLION PLAYS!
Posted on August 22, 2017
As of today, the combined play / stream count for all our shows has passed the 1 million mark. And this is NOT taking into account YouTube views, only direct traffic to the site and streams from our iTunes / Android feed.
In a time when "tens of millions", "hundreds of millions" and even "billions" are all numbers we associate with popular YouTube videos, "1 million" may not seem all that impressive. But for a website that was launched only 10 months ago, with no paid publicity and created by one person out of love for nostalgic radio shows and podcasts (most of which happened over a decade ago and were forgotten about by most) I am extremely proud of this number and would like to thank everyone that has ever used Podrot for a dose of nostalgia by listening back to their favourite shows and podcasts from years past.
Thank you for supporting us, and I look forward to providing more content and watching that number continue to rise.
Now here's a classic 80's music video to commemorate this milestone:
