Top Podcasts: November 2017

With increased download activity across all podcasts, the proliferation of new apps and the rise of new devices such as smart speakers, all which we believe will call for shorter podcast content in the coming months, this month Podtrac is publishing two podcast rankings: the Top Snackable Podcasts and the Top 20 Podcasts.  The “snackable” list ranks podcasts whose average episodes are 10 minutes and less, while the Top Podcasts list ranks all podcasts over 10 minutes.

You’ll find both lists at Podtrac.com
