“It’s good to see that across the year podcast listening continues to grow. While the top five podcasts are consistent, it’s great to see our new podcasts debuting as well as they have, along with the continued
strong performance of our titles in our key verticals - Sport, Parenting and Kids Entertainment, News, Entertainment and Culture, Factual & Drama and Radio podcasts.

“With Hamish & Andy continuing their run as Australia’s most listened to podcast along with the diverse audience all of our titles appeal to, there’s even more reason for advertisers to be talking to audiences
in a trusted and personal environment they can’t achieve with other media,” SCA Executive Head LiSTNR Podcasts, Grant Tothill, said.
