  • Edison Research has released the Top 50 US Podcasts by audience size, for Q2 2021. Joe Rogan is still #1, The Daily is #2, and Crime Junkie #3 - the data is compiled by asking participants what podcasts they listened-to in the past week, rather than raw download figures, and should measure everyone.

    • In terms of hosts, Megaphone (14), NPR (8) and Omny Studio (8) host the most shows.
  • Podtrac has highlighted how the Apple Podcasts bug affected US podcast traffic in July - reporting a 31% drop in downloads from the app. The company suggests that traffic during much of August will still be affected. Podtrac also report a significant drop in news podcast downloads since the end of the US election cycle in February 2020.

  • First look: PodMatch, a podcast guest booking service, has purchased Poddit, a competitor. The combined company will have nearly 20,000 members. Poddit’s website will cease at the end of August; no terms were given.
