“Of the 750,000 podcasts available from Apple, DeForge said the only other soap opera she found during a recent search was ‘The Archers,’ a British radio show also available on podcast.” Ray Routhier quoting Traci DeForge in his article, “From a living room in West Bath, a soap opera unfolds for download.”
The Archers debuted in 1950 and began broadcasting nationally January 1951. Three years later it had a listenership of approximately 9 million. It holds several records and in 2019 gained the designation of “the second greatest radio program of all time.” The Archers have no problem with the title ‘soap opera.’
We feel honored indeed and humbled to be rubbing podcast soap opera shoulders with such a prestigious production. Thank you for paving our way.
