When my team came up with the idea to start a podcast about airline KPIs, content, and technology, I was quite skeptical.

Although I’m the biggest fan of creating content, I found it hard to imagine that a podcast focusing on such niche topics will work. During the past 12 months, it turned out that it works.

Today we’re blown away when looking at the sheer number of listeners but also on the positive feedback we’ve received. We’ve received so many messages from people worldwide (and surprisingly not only airlines) that told us how our content helped them. Reading these messages means a lot to me, and I’m honestly grateful that we’re able to put out content that actually helps, inspires, and motivates.

SLIGHTLY DESPERATE THE FIRST WEEKS, WE’RE NOW THRILLED TO REACH THOUSANDS OF LISTENERS.

At the time, our podcast audience has grown exponentially. I can remember the first weeks when we started the podcast and checked the numbers daily. Unfortunately, they continually remained at a level of 2-3 daily listeners. However, after a few weeks, the number slowly began to rose. Today we’re proud to count more than 500 unique daily listeners, and more than 20,000 listened to episodes in a month.

Since we’ve published more than 60 episodes since the beginning, we thought it’s time to do some analysis and share the results with you.

Et voilá, here are the Top 5 Episodes of the ID1 Audio Experience

#5 — 6 Most Important Airline Operations KPIs

One of the very first podcast episodes I did — and yes, you can still hear that I’m new to podcasting. Quality isn’t perfect, and I was still trying to find my podcasting style. Nevertheless, the topic seems to be relevant for many of our listeners: A short and straight-to-the-point podcast in which I’m introducing the six most-used operations KPIs.

#4 — My thoughts around the future of KPIs

I loved to do that podcast covering one of the topics I’ve most-thrilled about the recent months. In this episode, I’m talking about Smart KPIs, the necessity to create 1,000 KPIs, and why the way we use KPIs is going to change. A must-listen for everyone who’s up for some innovative thoughts.

#3 — Content + Contextual Communication = The single most important thing for your airline

Another very innovative podcast and I’m super-happy to see that it reached thousands of listeners. In this podcast, I’m introducing the idea of airline operations content apps — an approach that will change how airlines consume content and enable contextual communication.

#2 — 10 Technology Tips For Your Airline You will be glad you started once lockdown is over

Interesting to see that both podcasts ranked second and first are related to COVID-19. With this one, I’m providing ten ideas you should focus on right now. These thoughts cover topics like Master Data Management, Advanced Analytics, KPIs, and many more.

#1 — How to adapt McKinsey’s COVID advice to your airline’s KPIs

Probably the combination of McKinsey and COVID in the headline attracted that many listeners. The episodes revolved around McKinsey’s so-called “3-bucket-method” and how you should adapt it to your airline KPIs.
