Not because they make money (they actually cost money!) but because it's the time of year when I do lots of paperwork, so this is easy to add.
I can therefore announce the most downloaded podcasts of 2014-15.
While I'm at it, I thought you might also like to know the most downloaded podcasts since I transferred the whole system over to Libsyn in 2008.
SeaKayakPodcasts.com has been running since 2006, previously called SeaKayakRoutes.com but I have no statistics from the previous period because the system I used did not provide them. OK - so the winners are:
