In June of 2015 our company audio program, The Culture Guy Podcast, was launched. Since then host Christian Höferle released 21 episodes. Today, 15 months later, we have collected enough reliable user and listener data which we are sharing with you now.
First of all, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to you for downloading our podcast and for subscribing to the program! Usage numbers have been constantly increasing month over month, which tells us that you find our content relevant and entertaining.
Looking at the statistics we found surprising and encouraging information. Since we are based in the United States it’s no wonder that the majority of listeners is from this country. However, we didn’t quite expect that more than half of our podcast downloads come from the U.S.
Overall, North America accounts for slightly more than 60% of all listeners, a quarter of our subscribers are based in Europe, and 11% from Asia. The remaining 4% live in Africa, South America, and Oceania. Looks like we have some catching up to do in these world regions.
In total, people from 54 different countries have so far found The Culture Guy Podcast! In the pie chart above you see the Top 13.
To date, the most popular episode appears to be Finding the Zone of Appropriateness when crossing cultures with guest Andy Molinsky. It is closely followed by Learning to read The Culture Map with Erin Meyer. Since these were two of the earlier episodes they obviously had a lot more time to accumulate downloads than more recent shows.
We already have interviews with at least six more guests lined up for the next several months and we are confident that your comments and suggestions will lead us to a lot more excellent candidates for future episodes. Here is what we typically want to know from them:
- What are your tips and tricks for cultural adjustment?
- What were some of your most memorable “cultural fool moments”?
- Which topics would you like to hear discussed on future podcast episodes?
To send in your feedback for the show, please email Christian and use our social media outlets: The Culture Mastery Facebook Page, the Facebook Page for The Culture Guy Podcast, our company’s Twitter feed, and Christian’s personal Twitter.
In fact, we would be honored if you could help us spread the word about The Culture Guy Podcast. Tell your networks and show people this page so we can get a feel for which cross-cultural topics you are most passionate about.
