“One of the things that we all have gotten asked lately is this: ”Have we reached 'peak podcasting’? To address that, I shared a finding from the latest quarter of our subscription product, the Podcast Consumer Tracker, which we recently delivered to our subscribers. Between Q3 and Q4 of 2019, amongst the top 15 podcast networks, 10 of them gained reach, and three stayed the same. Just two lost reach, and that by just a percentage point. To me, that’s not an industry that has reached peak anything. The pie continues to grow, and there is plenty of room to add audience, and yes--add podcasts.” — Tom Webster, Edison Research, in an email
