According to Edison Research’s Q4 2021 Podcast Consumer Tracking Report, SiriusXM was the top network for those three months of the year. This is the first network quarterly ranker from Edison Research.

“We are pleased to be able to introduce the podcast industry’s first all-inclusive ranker of producers. We’ve tracked this space for 10 quarters with thousands of listeners, and the data we see has been incredibly stable over that period of time,” said Edison Research SVP Tom Webster.
