Because EVERYONE LOVES END OF YEAR LISTS, I decided to make one of the top 5 most listened-to Tech ONTAP Podcast episodes of 2019. There’s no subjectivity here – just pure metrics. Because everyone also loves metrics…
For the year, the podcast hit 151,000 plays. May was our busiest month with 12,552. Usually, the most listened to episodes will be older episodes, since they have more time to accrue statistics.
