This podcast may use dynamic content insertion
Stats: Statistics are produced by NPR and Podtrac to help Up First to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. NPR and Podtrac are IAB v2 certified.
Dynamic content insertion: NPR 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. Up First may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.
Up First 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.
