Bug in Apple Podcast analytics
Apple Podcasts bug
According to 9to5mac, there's a possible bug in Apple's podcast analytics:
Note: these analytics are separate from the stats you see in your Transistor account. Apple displays stats only for episodes downloaded using the Apple Podcasts app.
Also: be aware that over the holidays, Apple Podcasts staff will be out of office November 16, 2018, to November 26, 2018, and December 21, 2018, to January 2, 2019. Apple says:
"Shows submitted during these windows may not be available within our regular time frame of five business days."
