Two Years of Watir Podcast
by Željko Filipin
A few days ago it was 2 years since I published the first Watir Podcast.
In this 2 years I have published 34 podcasts with people literally all over the world. Lately I am trying to produce a podcast a month, and I am trying to keep it about 30 minutes long. I have recorded podcasts as short as 5 minutes, but also longer than 70 minutes.
The following table lists downloads since December 2009, when I started using Podtrac. The first number is total downloads, the second number is unique downloads. Please notice #26. :)
I am glad to see that podcasts as old as 1 or even 2 years are still downloaded.

After two years, what to say? It was a lot of fun, I hope it will not end soon.
I would like to thank everybody that wanted to talk with me. I would probably stop recording podcast if I did not have a lot of help from Watir Podcast Team. A big thank you to all of you that co-hosted a podcast, contributed music and logo, worked on the web site, edited audio... I could not do it without you.
I would probably give up a long time ago if Tiffany Fodor did not offer to edit the audio and create show notes. Tiffany, thank you.
Also, a bit thank you to every listener. Yes, you too. Well, if you were not listening, all this would not make a lot of sense.
If you have some time, and you would like to contribute to the podcast, please let me know. I need help with finding guests, co-hosting, I am always looking for music that can be published under a Creative Commons licence... If you would like to take over Watir Podcast, let me know. I would help you with everything. I have other stuff to do, but if nobody is interested, I will not let the podcast die.
I did not mention a lot of people by name, because this blog post would end up being too long. You know who you are. Yes, you. Thanks.tags: podcast
