Who’s Listening? Male or Female


Listener Gender

Well, no big surprises here. Guys are geeks and geeks listen to podcasts. Whatever gender you are, we are happy to have you listening to the podcast. And we can all take this as a reminder to let our female friends know about the wonder of podcasts. Is history a topic that men are more interested in? Thoughts, opinions post them in the comments.

  1. uhm so girls can’t be geeks? I’d be careful of speaking in absolutes.

    History, as well as the humanities and social sciences as a whole, tend to attract more females than males, but this trend seems to be evening out a bit these days.

    I’m not saying that girls cannot be geeky, just that I’m not surprised that guys are. I know a few geeky girls, but most all of the guys I know are geeky which speaks towards these results.

    The only thing I am not sure about is the history part. Your comment about social sciences attracting more women is really interesting to me. Did you read something like that somewhere? I would love to post that on the blog. Thanks for the comment, keep them coming!
