Welcome to Behind the Scenes

This is a podcast site, home of free MP3 audio shows that you can listen to now on your computer by clicking on the MP3 icons below. Or, using podcasting client software such as Apple's iTunes, you can subscribe to our shows and have them downloaded automatically to your computer and optionally to your portable MP3 player whenever new shows become available.

Start by exploring the shows from Behind the Scenes on this page or explore other shows using the links on the left. When you find a show you want to subscribe to you have two choices. If you're using iTunes, simply click on the iTunes 1Click button on the upper left of the page to take you to the appropriate subscription page in iTunes and then click on the Subscribe button. If you're using another podcasting client, right-click (Control-click on the Mac with a one-button mouse) on the RSS Podcast button in the upper left and select "Copy Link" from the popup menu. Add a new podcast subscription in your client software and paste the link into the RSS field.

If you have questions feel free to use the email link on the left to contact a show host or TGN founder Craig Patchett. Thanks for visiting and God bless you!

FeedBurner has published their latest podcasting stats:

At first glance all looks well, until you start to read more carefully. Then you notice the following:

  • Out of roughly 6,000 podcasts, only about 20 have over 1,000 subscribers
  • Only "hundreds" have over 100 subscribers
  • The average number of subscribers per podcast is 33
  • Total subscribers to those 6,000 podcasts is around 195,000 listeners (assuming nobody listens to more than one podcast)
Read between the lines and you discover the following:
  • Roughly half (~2,900) of FeedBurner's podcasts have less than 5 subscribers each
So while the number of podcasts continues to grow at a rapid rate, the number of listeners is not keeping pace (despite well-reported surveys that have claimed otherwise). The good news is that in six weeks this should change with the release of iTunes 4.9.
