Feedburner says there are more than 1.6 million aggregate subscribers to FeedBurner-managed podcasts, and this number has more than doubled in the past six months.
In addition, the ratio of downloads to subscribers averages 2:1. This suggests a significant secondary market for podcast listenership beyond just the feed’s subscribers.
