Joe Rogan Again Leads The Top 50 US Podcasts List For Q1 2024


Edison Research has released the Top 50 Podcasts in the US for the first quarter of 2024, based on reach among weekly podcast listeners aged 13 and older. The rankings, derived from Edison Podcast Metrics, reflect total audience reach through continuous interviews conducted in English and Spanish throughout the quarter.

Maintaining their positions in the Top 3 from Q4 2023 are The Joe Rogan Experience, Crime Junkie, and The Daily. In Q4 2023, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce made an impressive leap into the Top 10, and this quarter it climbed further to rank fourth overall as the “Taylor Swift effect” continues.

Newcomers to the Top 50 include Club Shay Shay at #11, bolstered by a viral episode featuring Monique and Katt Williams, even earning a parody on Saturday Night Live. Nightcap, co-hosted by Shannon Sharpe of Club Shay Shay, debuted at #46. The Tucker Carlson Podcast, launched in December 2023 along with Carlson’s own streaming network, debuted at #24.

TikTok sensation The Basement Yard secured the #40 spot, while Dumb Blonde entered at #45. The Broski Report with Brittany Broski, launched in May 2023, has steadily risen to #48 and was highlighted in Edison’s Top Five Podcasts Launched in the U.S. in 2023.

Leaving the Top 50 this quarter are The Bill Simmons Podcast, H3 Podcast, Dark History, and WTF with Marc Maron Podcast.

The podcast ranker is based on data collected from 5,300 weekly podcast consumers aged 13 and older in the U.S. Participants reported their podcast listening habits from the past week, along with demographic, psychographic, and purchase behavior information. The rankings measure reach as a percentage of the weekly podcast listening audience.
