''The Daily'' Closes in on Joe Rogan's Podcasting Crown

According to The Media Monitors Podcast Listener survey from March 14-31, iHeartMedia and NPR were tied this quarter, each with 12 podcasts in its Top 200 chart. iHM's resurgence from Q4 of 2020 comes with the launch of a number of new shows including "Here's the Thing with Alec Baldwin" (#64) which premiered in January.

Another newcomer to the Top 200 is iHM's "Hell & High Water with John Heilemann" (180). PodcastOne also bounced back after a Q4 dip, with "The Steve Austin Show" (#54), "Court Junkie" (#173) and "Hotboxin' With Mike Tyson" (#179).

The Joe Rogan Experience saw a decline in listener share for the second straight survey cycle since becoming exclusive to Spotify in December, 2020. The drop in number of responses alongside the consistent quarter-over-quarter growth of "The Daily and Crime Junkie" indicates that there may be a new number one podcast in the coming months.

The "H3 Podcast" cracked the Top 25 this quarter. Though it has consistently been a Top 200 show, this quarter saw a surge in listenership following drama surrounding "Frenemies," one of the three distinct shows published in the feed. The H3 Podcast RSS feed publishes the titular "H3 Podcast," "Frenemies" which Ethan co-hosts with Trisha Paytas, and "H3 After Dark."

Comedy remains the most popular genre of podcast, but Society and Culture podcasts surged from 20 in Q4 to 32 in Q1 to tie for second place with News. History podcasts also saw a bump to 10 shows total in Q1, beating 4 total podcasts in Q4.

Notable Society & Culture podcasts from Q4 to Q1 in the Top 200: "Renegades: Born in the USA" (#62), "Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin" (#64), "Wild Ride! with Steve-O" (#80), "You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton" (#129) and "An Oral History of The Office" (#183).
