Sources: Edison Research Infinite Dial 2020 released March 19th, 2020. Q1 2018 report from Nielsen came out March 20, 2018. Total number of podcasts & episodes on iTunes updated April 2020.
That's an astoundingly large number of podcast content and creators!
To put things into perspective, as of this writing there's about 7.8 billion people on planet Earth.
Which means that 1 in 7800 of all people in the world have their own podcast.
Also consider that back in mid-2018, Apple confirmed that there were more than 500,000 podcasts.
And we're just in Q2 of 2020...
We hope this information illustrates the explosive growth of content and opportunities in the podcasting world.
Keep hustling, and we'll see you on the next one!
