"Podcasting is attracting a growing, younger and more diverse audience, and Latinos represent a significant swath of this uptick. As a Latina, I'm excited to see the availability of more quantifiable and nuanced research on our community and their listening behaviors and preferences, which is invaluable for driving the podcasting industry forward," said Liberated Syndication Inc.
