At the beginning of this article we mentioned our reach to 165 countries. With our streaming analytics we’re able track listeners and sessions by IP address. Over the past 1 1/2 years the top ten seemed to be settling into a predictable pattern….and suddenly for the first time ever, Japan passed the United States during the most recent 14 day statistics. We look at weekly stats, 14 day stats, 30 day stats and YTD stats to see how our content affects listener patterns. The following image depicts the current top ten from January 2013 through June 15, 2014:
