Be aware of how many of your podcast listens are Listeners and how many are Subscribers.

- Subscribers are the daily average of all listens over the 12 most recent episodes within 48 hours of your published episode. Subscriber data is available in our Thrive Bundle.
Average Daily Plays
This is one of our newest charts to track show growth. We take the last 12 episodes, add up the daily plays for those 12 episodes and divide by 12 to determine the average daily plays. While the number may seem low, this graph will track your show performance over time. If you have a growing audience, the average will increase over time.
