Some monthly stats

  • Happy March 1st. The Podnews Ranker, which measures who we talk about, says (surprise!) that Rogan and Spotify both inhabit the #1 slot for February. Rob Greenlee is the highest climber (up from #460 to #14), and Jeff Ostroff is the highest new person, in at #16. Our gender balance was 39% female.

  • Libsyn’s AdvertiseCast reports that the average CPM for podcast ads in its marketplace is up 6.3% year-on-year. February’s figure fell slightly from January’s record high, to $23.61.

CNN Breaking News Alerts

Where's My Jetpack?
Back in the 1980s, TV and films promised us everything from jetpacks to flying cars and holidays in space - so Where’s My Jetpack? Space journalist and author Sarah Cruddas and broadcaster Luke Moore take a look at some of those crazy inventions to discover if they’re actually just around the corner. It’s new today from Stak.
Ukrainecast
Ukrainecast is a new podcast from the BBC, trying to make sense of the current conflict.
