    1. The number of subscribers to the ogg feed is about a third of the number for either the MP3 or AAC. That’s still pretty respectable, I think, and it has been following the same slow but steady growth as the other two feeds.

      I added the flac link as an experiment, to gain some first hand experience hosting media on The Internet Archive. I have been pretty happy with that, as a producer, though I don’t know what the speed and availability is like for subscribers. I am not sure a flac feed would ever make sense though that would be the way to find out. I definitely did it more as an archive option so that anyone wanting to re-use the audio per its license would have essentially a raw audio option.

      I am glad someone noticed and commented on the flac link because I hadn’t announced it or otherwise mentioned it other than just adding the link into the posts on the web site.
