Edison Research has released its Q2 podcast listening chart which shows the top three networks are now Spotify, SXM Media, and iHeartRadio, respectively.
Spotify’s slid past Q1 leader SiriusXM by a slight margin. The Edison list ranks the most listened-to podcast networks based on total audience reach from Edison Podcast Metrics. Here are the top ten publishers for Q2:
1. Spotify 2. SXM Media 3. iHeartRadio 4. Audioboom 5. NPR 6. The New York Times 7. Audacy 8. Wondery 9. Cumulus Podcast Network 10. PRX
This ranker measures reach as a percentage of the weekly podcasting audience. Rankings are compiled by measuring the total unduplicated reach of all the shows represented by a given network. Listening is credited to the producer and/or the network that represents the advertising for the show, not the platform or app that the listener uses to access the podcast.
