We've been doing a lot of internal site stat-running around here lately, and we couldn't help but notice that quite a lot of those of you who visit our site out here on the world wide web visit our 'Ways to Listen' page more than most anything else. (It was the fourth most-visited page on our site in the last year overall). In some sense, that makes us happy, because you want to listen to our show! But in other ways, that suggests that we aren't doing a good enough job making our site useful and usable for you. That's something we already knew to some extent — and something that's been at the core of our ongoing efforts to redesign our entire web presence in the coming months. (Stay tuned on that). Still, we have to wonder: what are you looking for when you come to our site? How did you get here? What made you click 'Ways to Listen'? And did that help?
