Is there a way to tell how long people listening to my podcasts in the Blubrry stats?

Not really.

The only thing blubrry stats will tell you is that someone downloaded your file.  As far as I know, there is no way to tell how long (or even if) they have listened.

Some folks thought of this back in the early days of podcasting and quickly discovered that privacy concerns would trump any advantage of tracking playback once the media is downloaded (podcasting is downloadable media, playable anywhere at the leisure of the consumer).

I personally would flip out if my mp3 player reported back to home when and for how long I listened to stuff. Plus such a capability is not available in mp3 media.
