2,000,000 Audio Downloads (And Counting)!

As of today, the total number of downloads across our entire catalog of audio shows passed the two million mark! And it was just 15 months ago that we hit one million.

Josh, Ron and I started the Pick of the Week Podcast five years ago on a lark and we had no idea what we were in for. We had no idea that it would help us meet so many great people and make so many good friends. We had no idea that that first audio show would be the initial domino to fall in a long and hard journey that would eventually lead to full time jobs in comics media. So many crazy thing have happened to us in the last five years since we started producing our shows but we're still staggered when we see numbers that reach into the millions.

None of this would be possible without all of you and we will always be eternally grateful for our audience, the iFanbase. So, a big thank you goes out to everyone who has ever listened to our shows! We do it for all you folks.

A special thank you goes out for all of you who have sent in e-mails, called and left voicemails, attended any of the live recordings, left iTunes reviews, or have generally gone the extra mile to support us and our shows.

If I can be permitted one more round of gratitude: thanks to Gordon, Jim, Paul, Mike, Augie de Blieck Jr., Sonia Harris, Tom Katers, Jonathan London, Chris Neseman, and Jason Wood for their stellar guest starring, co-hosting, and fill-in duties. And thanks to all of the guests on Talksplode, and on Don't Miss. And a special thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors (who sell fine products, you should check them out).

We have a blast doing our shows and hanging out with all of you fine people every week! And with that said, the road to three million begins now!

  11. That frickin’ awesome! Long Live iFanboy!

  12. And don’t forget the number of people you guys have perhaps inspired to do podcast of their own. I know I can count myself among those people. Honesty, for all the hours and amount of laughs and entertainment you guys have provided, there probably aren’t enough "thank yous" to go around. But here’s another. Thanks for all the hard work.

  13. Wow! That’s great! Congratulations you guys. You keep making it, I’ll keep listening.

  55. Congrats on the achievement. I wondered if you would ever archive the audio programs like you have the video episodes?

  56. iFanboy is one of the reasons I got back into comics. So thank you for bringing me back a piece of joy that I truly missed.

  57. You guys bring my love of comics (24 years and counting) to a whole new level. So congrats on a well deserved HUGE number, and lets make it grow.

  59. how many times have the vidcasts been downloaded???

  60. You guys are the best there is at what you do and what you do is fantastic.  My wife may not like that you’ve elevated my love of comics but I can’t thank you enough.

    As someone just starting to get into this ‘line of work’ my respect for what you guys do on a weekly, hell daily, basis has skyrocketed.  Not that I didn’t have respect before but now I’m starting to understand just how much work this is.

    Again, thanks and well done!

  61. This is Great News guys! Keep it up and in four months i’ll be posting congrats about the 4 millionth! And as a bonus i’ll keep telling people about the podcast!
