This site is an automatically generated collection of plots and tables visualizing some metadata from my favorite podcasts/podcast networks.
Data includes episode runtimes, release dates, and hosts (in case of The Incomparable, also guests).
The data sources are:
stats.txtfiles Jason has set up for me to parse (thanks Jason <3) and some web-scraping of the individual show’s archive pages.
Data collection and site/plot-recreation happens Sunday morning (UTC).
This project is in a perpetual cycle of maintenance and “ain’t nobody got time for that”-ness, which is primarily reflected in many of the plots not looking right.
The reason is that whenever I tweaked the plot dimensions so that the spacing allows for all the text to be readable, it only takes a few months for multiple new podcasts to appear.
Since the data collection and plot creation is automated and updated daily, this means the plots now have to fit more data, but since I haven’t figured out a good way to auto-adjust the plot width accordingly, plots will look squished after a few months.
The last time the data was updated and the date of the latest episode within each dataset.
