Edison Research data about podcast listening

Podcast listening in Australia bigger than the US

Listen · · 2.6 minutes to read
  • The Infinite Dial Australia 2024 was released, from Edison Research and CRA. 35% of Australians listen to podcasts every week (the US number is 34%). Overall, Australia is 9% ahead of the US for online audio listening.

  • Prisa’s spanish-language podcast platform Podium has suddenly removed a number of podcasts from its platform - and those podcasts aren’t saying why. “We are trying to clarify the situation,” says comedy podcast Aquí hay dragones; El Descampo says “there are problems that I hope will be resolved soon”, while Nuria Pérez from Gabinete de Curiosidades says that her podcast “has disappeared from all platforms, and that’s all I can say without crying”. A concern about use of copyright music has been mentioned by others, but Prisa isn’t saying anything.

    • Many podcasts on Podium were available freely on open RSS, but then moved to the platform as exclusives to monetise.
  • How much do you get paid? Audio professionals in the US are invited to help the AIR 2024 Rate Card Campaign, by giving the organisation your current compensation data to reflect the latest trends and best practices.

A message to our friends in the UK

Thomas J Price

Obviously, it’s a day for you to vote tomorrow. But make sure your friends vote too. And make sure you bring photo ID (even if it’s expired) - because you’ll need it to vote.

Podnews is run by a Brit, who has already voted, and spent £25 sending his vote back to the UK. You can buy a lot of Marmite with £25. But you just need to turn up, and it won’t cost you anything to have your say. So please vote. Thank you.
