DUBLIN, Ireland - April 12, 2016
The occasion coincides with the first anniversary of the podcast, purposed from day one, with introducing the genre of the psychology of success to families around the world.
Presented by Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly and Marie O'Riordan, Purple Psychology enjoyed its biggest ever download day with Episode 40 on Sunday, December 13th, 2015. The topics covered featured, "What Personality Types buy the most thoughtful Christmas presents? Tips for dealing with Phone Anxiety and discussing Coping Strategies for HSP Highly Sensitive People."
"Since Episode 1, I was astonished to receive feedback from listeners ranging from individuals to students, teachers, academics and regulated professionals. Teachers in Ireland have admitted to us that they hold regular events to listen to the podcasts and facilitate discussion groups afterwards. I am fascinated that our little podcast has drawn attention from so many countries. I was curious when we were in 10 countries and 70 is over the top," expressed, Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly. "We only released this podcast a year ago. In that time, a big name technology company in America, with a list of major industry awards behind it, approached us to sponsor the show. We were very surprised that Senior Management had even heard of the podcast. Currently, Purple Psychology is sponsored by the iOS 365Success app in the App Store."
The Purple Psychology podcast has repeatedly enjoyed the No.1 spot on several iTunes Charts in different countries over the past 12 months including; No.1 in Top Podcasts, No.1 in Top Episodes, No.1 in Training and No.1 in Education. Dr. O'Reilly is a multi-award winning International Educationalist and Personality Theory Researcher.
"The No.1 country where the podcast is downloaded the most is the United States. We never expected this to be the case in a million years. iTunes is available in 155 countries. We are only in 70 countries, right now. We have a long way to go as we are not even half way there. I am looking forward to future episodes," noted Marie O'Riordan. "It was funny as just the other day one of the team, Dr. Graham Hughes, was curious to know what country would be number 70? Now, we have confirmation that our newest listeners are in the Republic of Zambia in Southern Africa. As a broadcaster for many years, this sort of reach across 6 continents is unparalleled. Technology and the simplicity of access on devices made it possible. It is a wonderful milestone that we hope to build on."
Information from iTunes reveals that people listening to Purple Psychology also subscribe to the award-winning podcasts, "Freakonomics Radio," and, "Stuff You Should Know."
