Not good with numbers

Being mathematically challenged brings a host of difficulties. We find we try to avoid anything that looks like math. When people start talking math, our brain seizes up. Forget trying to understand negative numbers and fractions.

However, last week, we were paying close attention to the numbers.

On July 30 we broke 30,000 downloads and our first episode passed 1,600 downloads. On August 1, we were downloaded in more than 1,500 cities worldwide.

Those are some numbers we can wrap our numerically impaired brains around.

Oh, we realize that there are podcasts out there that can boast larger numbers. It’s okay because at one point, they were where we are now. We fully expect to get to where they are soon.


Waking up this morning and seeing this number was a gift. We are excited to hit this benchmark. During the COVID crisis, like many other business, we took a hit. Like many others we had concerns about our future. We know compared to the millions of downloads other podcast have 30,000 may not seem like a huge deal. For us it is. While most of the world will go about their daily lives today, here at New Meadows Media we will be celebrating.

Physical Distancing Friendly AND Entertaining

You can be anywhere enjoying Restless Shores even while wearing your mask.

You have been steadily downloading episodes of Restless Shores despite COVID and social unrest, and we are grateful. We admit we are a little lonely out here in the podcast ‘verse. It’s not like we can hear the applause of our fans.

Share your feedback with us – which by the way, you can do and still stay safe. We loved hearing from the fan who had to know what was going on with Miguel’s bracelet or the one who enjoyed the addition of a psychic. Or the fellow who calls his great aunt once a week to play her the latest episode over the phone so she could enjoy it (she’s a huge fan.) We love hearing those things. It lets us know that we’re continuing to entertain you and gets your plot ideas to our writer. Please keep sharing with us.
