Podcast Ranker

ARN also scores top publisher of the month

Triton Digital‘s Australian Podcast Ranker has been released for October, giving insight into the Top 100 Podcasts as well as the Top 10 Publishers in Australia. The survey period was from 1 October through 31 October 2022, as measured by Triton’s Podcast Metrics measurement service. 

Hamish and Andy have had their streak at #1 ended this month by fellow heavy hitter, ARN’s Casefile True Crime. The podcast recorded 993,418 monthly listeners and 2,914,134 downloads in October. 

It wasn’t a long fall for SCA’s Hamish and Andy, however – the previous #1 lands in second spot this month with 941,049 monthly listeners and 2,161,005 monthly downloads. 

In third is ARN’s Life Uncut with Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne, lifting a spot from last survey and knocking The Teacher’s Trial out of the top three. 

The Teacher’s Trial followed the trial and subsequent guilty verdict of Chris Dawson, subject of The Teacher’s Pet podcast. With the guilty verdict coming through in August, The Teacher’s Trial has now dropped to #30. Fellow News Corp true crime podcast, Shandee’s Story, has lifted 18 places to come in at #10.

The biggest lift in rankings also came from an ARN podcast this month, with catchup podcast Will & Woody lifting 47 places to land at #93. 

The top three publishers for October were ARN with a total of 19,323,975 monthly downloads, LiSTNR (SCA) with 9,716,684 monthly downloads, and Audioboom with 7,289,777. This leaves the top three unchanged.

In fact, the top 15 podcast publishers are largely unchanged except for DM Podcasts and Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) switching places. DM Podcasts now comes in at 9th, while SEN sits at 10th.

ARN’s head of digital audio, Corey Layton, said: “Today marks a significant milestone for the iHeartPodcast Network, holding the #1 Publisher spot for 30 consecutive rankers. Our incredible slate of podcasts continues to engage Australian audiences, leading to our highest ever downloads.”
