With nearly 70 active shows, including 9 of the top 20 podcasts, NPR has delivered more than 1 billion podcast downloads and results for sponsors across platforms — mobile, desktop, and smart speakers.¹
Each month, 23.8M people listen to NPR podcasts — and on average they’re listening to five NPR podcasts. They listen at home, in their car, at work, on the go, and they’ve helped make NPR the leading podcast producer. With daily news briefings from Up First, exploration of human behavior with Hidden Brain and the origin story behind some of the biggest brands with How I Built This with Guy Raz, NPR is a podcasting destination. For brands, that means the opportunity to align with a leader in an uncluttered environment where your brand’s voice stands out.
The results speak for themselves.
