That’s the aggregate number of downloads that Wondery’s six-episode Dr. Death has tallied since launching on September 4. The podcast’s downloads were verified by Podtrac, and it should be noted that the number includes downloads experienced by the trailer, which came out to around 440k. If you take that chunk out, we’re talking about a spread at around 1.3 million downloads per episode at this point in time. Dr. Death wrapped up its run last Tuesday.
Number of the Week: 8 million
