Podcast analytics software

Know how your podcast is performing with your audience

Transistor is consistently rated as one of the best podcast analytics tools. It gives you detailed stats for your podcast like monthly listens, total listens per episode, average downloads per episode, most popular listening apps, and which devices your listeners are using.

Overall analytics for your podcast

On Transistor's "Analytics" page, we provide a variety of high-level stats:

  • Average downloads per episode: this shows how well your episodes are doing 7, 30, 60, and 90 days after being published. Often, potential advertisers especially want to see these numbers.

  • The number of people who subscribe to your podcast: subscriber counts are notoriously difficult to measure because podcasting is built on top of RSS (an open platform that doesn't track individuals). However, we give you an estimate based on the average of the first 24 hours of downloads of your last 3 episodes to calculate an estimated subscriber count. The graph is an estimated count over time.

  • Listener trends: see your download history over time. This allows you to view the number of listens by year, month, day, or in the last 24 hours.
