Have you fallen in love with podcasts?
This easy-to-consume format has grown a massive amount in recent years, even though it has its roots dating back to the 1980s. Podcasts have transitioned from simple DIY shows made by friends in bedroom studios to highly-polished, professional media pieces with big budgets behind them.
Over the past decade, podcasts have become one of the most popular (audio) entertainment forms in the UK. The statistics speak for themselves. As of 2020, there were over 15 million podcast listeners in the UK. The audience is growing steadily as the popularity of podcasts increases, with forecasts predicting close to 20 million listeners by 2024.
