The LiSTNR network has seven podcasts in the top 20 including Crime Junkie, SmartLess, Morbid, The Howie Games, and Just the Gist.

“There is no doubt podcast listening is gaining further ground in Australia and LiSTNR’s ability to provide a created and curated premium slate of local and international podcasts gives listeners a fantastic depth of choice. As one of the few companies in Australia focused on creating original podcasts, this is an outstanding achievement for LiSTNR, eclipsing our best ever previous month as a publisher of original podcasts to achieve 4 million listeners, and setting a new audience benchmark as a podcast network of 8.6 million monthly listeners,” SCA, executive head, LiSTNR Podcasts, Grant Tothill, said.

“There are a lot of people who continue to work tirelessly right across our business to keep our forward momentum. Along with our talented creators and partners, they are the ones responsible for this brilliant result.”
