This podcast may use tracking and attribution and dynamic content insertion

Stats: Statistics are produced by Megaphone, Podtrac, Chartable and Podsights to help The History of Fun to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and useragent is used to help calculate this figure. Megaphone, Podtrac and Chartable are IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: Megaphone, Chartable and Podsights or their partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - they may spot a device that downloaded an episode of The History of Fun later visited the website of an advertiser; or they may track that a device that listened to The History of Fun also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Megaphone may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. The History of Fun may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

The History of Fun is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
