It’s interesting that when you go on itunes itself and type in “podcasts” there is no sign at all of their alleged number one podcast.  Why is that I wonder...?  Also, no podcast chart on the actual itunes.

Here is a link to all the podcasts on nine news

https://omny.fm/shows/maddie/playlists/podcast
It gets a bit confusing as to the order that they should be viewed, or is the no special order?

That website is not the official itunes page, it’s done by a third party.  Have a look at the real itunes.

From the website you linked to above:

How are these charts calculated?

The short answer is "we don't know". They're calculated and compiled by iTunes, we can only assume they're based on downloads. Given that the published charts are presented as "live" rather than covering any specified timeslot, there's obviously some kind of algorithm at play, but beyond that it's anybody's guess. Podcast charts are slightly different since these are charts of "channels" producing content on a rolling basis, rather than a finished product like an album or a song. Again, the chart is most likely based on downloads but may also be based on new subscriptions too.

After some time digging about on itunes I have found their podcast chart and it would seem Maddie is number one based on all nine episodes together, whereas individual episodes rank much lower down the chart.  There is certainly no mention of Maddie on the itunes podcast front page however.

Sorry, I didn't read the small print. :(
When it was first published I signed up to itunes then discovered a monthly fee is payable after 30 days free trial.  The podcast is also available on GooglePlay for free, which is the method I used to listen to the first three episodes. I wonder where GP's listening figures are correlated for Mark's podcasts?

I thought you had to pay a subscription for googleplay too.  I find the whole thing a bit baffling tbh, would rather listen to Radio Four.

Maybe you do now if you stream music on GP but I don't use my phone for that. Certainly the GP podcast app is free to listen to, although I couldn't download it onto my laptop, only my phone.

In line with much of the McCann case, nothing is as it seems. To be fair to Saunokonoko, though, I think the publicity on Australian TV & Social Media probably has generated several thousand listeners.

It's a very interesting site to view.
Never tempted to have a look?

Nope.
'She ( Kate) did, she brought it up and that she, I mean, this is awful in retrospect as well, she asked what my opinion was on, erm, tut, on whether they were okay leaving the, the doors unlocked, because she was saying 'Is it better that if Madeleine wakes up she can get out and find us or', erm, 'or locking it and, you know, finding that we're not there and the door's locked if she woke up', because Madeleine had woken up, what I thought was the night before. Erm, tut, and it was in that context really, just asking, you know, what I thought. So it was obviously something that was on her mind a bit, huh'.
