CTS 250: 2020 Year in Review
After 47 episodes we’re closing the book in another year of podcasting. We missed 5 episodes which is not bad for publishing every week. We run this podcast in addition to our careers and while being with our families. We’ve certainly enjoyed the process along the way and have learned a lot. There was plenty to learn since we’re still in the pandemic. This year we were able to top 525k all-time downloads of the podcast. We’re happy with the results since we focus on Clear To Send part-time, only utilizing social media to share our episodes. And with the reshares from our listeners, we’re super grateful for your support! The show is now surpassing 15k downloads per month. A big shift for the podcast since July 2020. Around this time we thought downloads would decrease due to people staying home and doing less traveling. But as we approach 2021, we want to ask for your help by filling out our yearly listener survey. It allows us to learn how we’re doing and to learn more about our listeners. We want to give shoutouts to those who have been our top supporters and who have been active in our Slack workspace: GjermundCarlosLarianaKeithMatt Here are some statistics for the podcast.
