We host a podcast on Soundcloud that normally garners around 14,000 plays per 24 hour period. Overnight this number on the stats page dropped to 1,500 plays for the past 24 hours. Paradoxically, my RSS feed downloads skyrocketed for the most recent show.

Does this have something to do with Soundcloud podcasting going public? Did you change the way stats are counted for tracks?
