We don’t publish metrics about listenership for Hack the Process because it’s not how we judge our progress. We wouldn’t be able to offer a confident estimate of how many hundreds or thousands of hours of people spend listening to however many episodes of the show over a given span of time.  

What we can tell you is that the Hack the Process audience is interested in learning about how to take the ideas in their heads and make them real. David’s interviews go beyond the subject expertise of the guest, encouraging them to discuss how their journey has shaped their work and helped them sustain both their message and themselves along the way. 

The value proposition is the opportunity to sit in on an intimate conversation with a guest as they revisit the hurdles they’ve encountered and the systems they’ve devised to overcome them. We try to make each episode a timeless snapshot of the guest’s strategic and creative process that will be as relevant today as it will be in decades to come.
