Triton Digital Releases the October U.S. Podcast Ranker
|RADIO ONLINE | Thursday, November 16, 2023|
Triton Digital releases its October, 2023 reporting period (October 2-October 29), U.S. Podcast Ranker, as measured by Triton's Podcast Metrics measurement service. Yet again, SiriusXM Podcast Network remained in the #1 spot on the Top Sales Networks Report for the month of October, with 50.6 million Average Weekly Downloads and 14.3 million Average Weekly Users. Wondery came in again at #2 with 31.7 million AWD and 8.1 million AWU, followed by Audacy Podcast Network at #3 with 21.7 million AWD and 6.5 million AWU.
This month Triton Digital added two new sales networks to its Top Sales Network Report, PRX and Relevant Radio.
For this reporting period, the top three podcasts based on downloads included Dateline NBC (NBCUniversal News Group) again at #1, Crime Junkie (audiochuck) again at #2, and Morbid (Wondery) again at #3.
For listeners, the top three podcasts included Crime Junkie (audiochuck) again at #1, Dateline NBC (NBCUniversal News Group) again at #2, and Morbid (Wondery) again at #3.
Debuts for downloads in the month of October include Snap Judgement (PRX), Normal Gossip (PRX/Radiotopia) and Buried Bones (Wondery). For listeners, debuts this month included Search Engine (Audacy Podcast Network) and Girls Next Level (Audioboom). For both downloads and listeners there were three debuts including TED Talks Daily (PRX), The Moth (PRX), and Snap Judgement Presents: Spooked (PRX).
NPR is temporarily excluded from the rankers this month due to a planned data collection migration. They will return to the rankers once the migration is complete.
For the month of October podcast downloads are down 4.6% compared to September. This can partially be attributed to the release of Apple iOS 17 and that Apple podcast episodes that are older than seven days will no longer be considered "new" and automatically downloaded.
