Americans who listen to podcasts use the medium to stay in touch with the latest news, and 51% say they find podcasts relaxing. According to a recent survey of more than 1,000 adults in the U.S, podcasting is a fun way to listen.
In 2020, more than 100 million Americans listened to at least one podcast every month, and there are currently more podcasts available for download on iTunes and Spotify than in January 2020. Together with the growing number of listeners, this means that there will be over 1.5 million new podcasts on the podcast market by 2022. In 2021, people will listen to more than 2.3 million podcasts per month on Spotify and iTunes, a 3.4% increase from February 2019 and a 7.1% increase from January 2019.
Nine out of ten podcast listeners in the US say they listen to podcasts at home, and more than half of those who have ever listened to a podcast has heard it at least once in their lives, more than six months ago. Another podcast study shows that 30% of people listen to podcasting on Apple's podcast service, and more than half (52%) of the entire U.S. population listens to the Apple podcast service.
