It's a live signal so every listener's experience is going to be unique to the time they tuned in.

You could look at it like this

Source Connects and sends a constant stream of data to the server with no one ever hearing the data.
30 minutes later a listener tune in, everything that happened for the past 30 minutes is never heard by this listener.
15 minutes later another listeners tunes in and everything that happened for the past 45 minutes he never hears but he now hears roughly the same things as the first listener at roughly the same time.

The servers buffer is circular so it constantly is getting overwritten by new data.
