Podchaser, the most comprehensive podcast database, released its new rising podcast ranker, the “Podchaser 25.” Bolstered by data partnerships with top listening apps, Podchaser provides a first-of-its-kind snapshot of the top 25 hottest, up-and-coming podcasts.
Brands, agencies, and publishers can now identify trending new podcasts that are gaining rapid popularity to surface new business opportunities, including advertising, content acquisition, cross-promotion, trend analysis, and much more.
In contrast to traditional popularity charts that track a limited subset of opted-in podcasts, Podchaser monitors listener behavior for all podcasts, including independent shows, to provide unparalleled insight into the industry.
Measuring trends in the popularity of recently released podcasts, the Podchaser 25 is determined by Podchaser’s proprietary Power Score™, a metric ranging from 1 to 100 based on over 30 unique data points including audience size, subscribers, playthrough rates, and cross-platform influence over time.
“Podchaser’s mission is to connect the fractured ecosystem of podcasting with a shared dataset,” said Bradley Davis, CEO at Podchaser. “This aggregation allows us to unearth great content across all podcasts, as shown in the Podchaser 25.”
Gain access to Power Score and reach data for all active podcasts — along with demographics, verified contact information, charts, and more — via Podchaser Pro.
