New Podcast Creation Has Fallen Off A Cliff

  • According to data compiled by Chartr, fewer podcasts were created in 2022 than in the two years prior.
  • The number of new shows created dropped by nearly 80% between 2020 and 2022.
  • Some of that can be attributed to the pandemic — podcast creation peaked in 2020 when people truly had nothing better to do, but the number of new shows in 2022 was even lower than pre-pandemic levels: 337,063 podcasts (2019) vs 219,178 (2022).
