Second on the list is My Favorite Murder with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstack. Gemischtes Hack, Fest & Flauschig come in as third and fourth consumed, respectively. The Misfits Podcast, closes out the top five podcasts, globally this year.

Later this week, Spotify will unveil personalized Spotify “Wrapped”, which provides Spotify users with bespoke insights on the artists, songs, music genres, and podcasts they listened to the most, as well as fun facts like how many minutes of music they heard and how many songs they “liked”. For the first time, listeners will be able to access this experience directly in the Spotify app, on mobile and tablet and via a website.
Additionally, Spotify is creating share cards highlighting fans’ personal tastes and making it available for them to post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat.
