SCA’s head of podcasting, Grant Tothill, said podcasts have become the fastest growing entertainment media in Australia.
“With so much choice from information and education-based podcasts, to entertainment, sport, true crime, pop culture and comedy, health and wellbeing, arts and lifestyle, Australians are now using podcasts as part of their daily habit and turning more and more to trusted Australian voices,” he said.
“We are continuing to co-create premium podcast series with well-known Australians across a number of key genres and in a variety of styles, from short-form timely podcasts, through to timeless audio features, to match the increasing demand from both listeners and brands alike.”
Since the September data was collated, PodcastOne Australia has launched five more podcast titles: Zero Waste Baby with Veronica Milsom, Hamish and Andy’s The Remembering Project, Breaking Poverty with Adam Shand, The Boat Shed from Hook Line and Sinker, and the NSW Police State Crime Command‘s official podcast.
