I created a quick data visualization of forum participation for each episode of Pseudopod which you can see at this link: https://vigilant-hugle-1fb35f.netlify.com

Each episode is represented in chronological order along the bottom, x-axis, from left to right. The left y axis represents the number of comments (replies) in its respective Episode Comments thread. The right y-axis represents the corresponding number of views of each episode's thread.

You can see the values for individual episodes by mousing over the graph. In the screen capture below, for example, you can see that the forum thread for episode 186 Ankor Sabat received 27,733 views and 69 comments.

Hey this is really neat! What did you use to gather the data?

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

I remember I just scraped it from the forum webpage itself using javascript in the browser console
