Breaking down the Apple email in early February, where you should look for your Spotify stats, Castro’s new promoted podcasts feature! What are good download numbers after you launch? What does being at the top of the Apple Podcasts really mean? listens vs downloads, a really bad one star review, chatting about the IAB Privacy and Compliance Unit and of course stats!
