I was just looking at the compete.com data for podshow.com, Adam Curry‘s hyped audio and video podcasting network that hasn’t really achieved much attention lately (my guess, they will sell or close within the next year or so). The compete data seems to prove me wrong, but those numbers look awfully wrong to me. Look at this:

Somehow, the numbers on Alexa feel right to me. The hype around podcasting has died down. iTunes is the default way of getting podcasts. The amount of interaction the general public wants to have with show producers is actually very low (that’s what podshow thought was going to drive traffic, I think).
