Another big debut came from News Corp’s The Mushroom Cook.

Commercial Radio and Audio (CRA) and Triton Digital have released the April instalment of the Australian Podcast Ranker. 

Taking the top spot again was LiSTNR’s Hamish and Andy, who recorded 918,977 monthly listeners and 1,775,200 monthly downloads.

Staying in second was iHeart’s Casefile True Crime, with 814,928 monthly listeners and 1,959,550 monthly downloads. 

Making its debut into the third spot was daily news podcast, ABC News Top Stories. With 668,722 monthly listeners and 1,869,485 monthly downloads, ABC News Top Stories has bumped last month’s third-positioned podcast, Mamamia Out Loud, down to fourth. 

ABC director news Justin Stevens said of the result, “The fantastic performance of ABC News Top Stories demonstrates its value and the audience demand for a quality news service in the podcast age.”

Another big podcast ranker debut came from The Mushroom Cook – News Corp Australia’s true crime podcast that tried to piece together the puzzle of how three people died after sitting down to share a meal in the small Australian town of Leongatha, Victoria. With 286,947 monthly listeners and 536,230 monthly downloads, The Mushroom Cook marked its first ranker in 16th position. 

The biggest lifter was LiSTNR’s Footy Talk – Rugby League Podcast, up 77 places to land at #97.

ARN’s iHeart kept its position as the top podcast publisher in the country. ARN’s head of digital audio, Corey Layton, said: “The iHeart team and our partners continue reaching Australian podcast listeners at scale. Across entertainment, education and escapism, brands continue leaning into our content at record highs.”

LiSTNR continued its run as the top sales representation podcast network nationally.

“LiSTNR has shown audience growth across its owned and operated podcast slate as well as its partner titles. Hamish & Andy has again taken the number one position and LiSTNR remains the number one sales representation network,” SCA executive head, LiSTNR podcasts, Grant Tothill, said.

“To see audience growth of our radio and original podcasts that has materialised into a record revenue month for LiSTNR is an outstanding achievement by everyone, and along with our new LiSTNR AdTech Hub, our sales team continues to offer advertisers more and more reasons to reach different audiences at scale.”
