Top 10 ArchBeat Podcasts for 2014

Launched in March 2009, the OTN ArchBeat Podcast has produced 283 individual programs. Each podcast starts as a 30 minute panel discussion (give or take a few minutes) featuring anywhere from two to six panelists, drawn from my ever-growing list of what I call "the usual suspects." Those 30-minute programs are then cut into roughly 10-minute segments. To date, those 283 individual segments have been downloaded nearly 300,000 times. The recording, editing, and overall production is done right here in my home office.

Consistently one of the most popular Oracle podcasts, listeners have kept OTN ArchBeat in the #2 position for the past six months, second only to the Oracle Database Podcast.
