Nine new podcasts debuted in February. The highest debut came from Happy Hour with Lucy & Nikki at #16, in the first ranker since the pair made the jump over from Spotify to LiSTNR.

Other debuts include Wondery’s MrBallen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories at #73 and SiriusXM’s The Megyn Kelly Show at #149. 

It was a big month for ABC’s podcasting division, with two major spikes. ABC News Daily lifted 46 places to #10, and If You’re Listening with Matt Bevan shot up a staggering 159 places to #35.

ARN remains in the top spot for Publishers, with ARN’s head of digital audio, Corey Layton, saying: “With 3 out of 4 Australians that listen to podcasts each month selecting an iHeart show, the engagement of our incredible slate can’t be beaten. Combined iHeart delivers more podcast hits that drive over 1 million downloads per month, more than any other publisher.”

Topping the list for sales representation was LiSTNR. SCA chief commercial officer, Seb Rennie, said: “Today’s Australian Podcast Ranker results are a strong demonstration of LiSTNR’s audience growth and listener engagement. With the launch of LiSTNR’s AdTech Hub this month providing deep insights and a privacy first environment, and a new, improved user experience on the refreshed LiSTNR app, there are even more compelling reasons for advertisers to take advantage of the unique benefits that podcast advertising brings and engage with listeners on a deeper level.”
