Podcasts are cheap to produce, easy and cheap to release worldwide, and they are easier and less expensive to promote than other forms of media. 51% of all Americans have listened to a podcast, 22% listen to podcasts weekly, and 6% are ardent fans.

They often listen in times when reading books and watching movies is impossible, which means your podcast reaches them when there’s less competition for their attention, and podcasts listeners buy books, go to movies, and recommend media frequently. Major advertisers sponsor popular podcasts and studios license and buy them for use in producing television shows.

Podcast creators retain ownership and creative control of their work as they build audiences who love the content they make.
