Just last year, a majority of Americans said they never listened to podcasts. However, by the start of 2019, two-thirds of Americans listen to podcasts at least once in a while, including 23% who do so a few times a week. So why the sudden jump in popularity? It goes without saying that oral storytelling has stood the test of time since the beginning of time because of its ability to captivate audiences. Now, podcasts provide bite-sized amounts of storytelling right at our fingertips. And with thousands of podcasts to choose from, there’s truly a topic for everyone.
