ARN’s Head of Digital Audio, Corey Layton, said “To remain Australia’s favorite podcast publisher, and hold five of the top 10 most popular podcasts, is an incredible achievement. These results highlight it’s not all about size (as those who know me will attest), it’s about content that consistently resonates with listeners and advertisers alike.”
Overall, ARN’s iHeartPodcast Network represents 41 of Australia’s top 150 most popular podcasts.
