AfterPod — Different Statistics

Who “serves” the RSS feeds?

  • Feedburner (a Google service) does not actually host the feeds, it just facilitates their delivery. Many such “middlemen” tend to anonymize the identity of the actual feed source as a by-product.
  • A couple of categories, NULL and UNKNOWN, are… well… the “known unknowns” you hear about. As the data is refined, these will go away. Or into other categories. I hope.
  • It appears they aggregate a lot of .EDU seminars and presentations. Many are video.
  • Librivox and some others are not really podcasts, they are audiobooks (usually public domain) that are read and recorded by a worldwide network of volunteers. Do I need to say FREE?
