21% of Americans listened to at least one podcast a month in 2016, 23% more than 2015. That equals the number of Americans that use Twitter!
With that growth, niche marketing podcasts have sprung up left and right as marketers participate in the new medium. Inbound marketing now has a small community of podcasts dedicated specifically to discussing the latest news, strategies, tactics, and hacks.
We put together a ranking of 2017’s top inbound marketing podcasts based on popularity. Please keep in mind that this is an estimate of subscribers and downloads, not quality. A podcast that has been running for 10 episodes may have exceptional content, but it also probably does not have a large audience (yet).
We use a point system based on web traffic, social media following, and iTunes reviews. Exact podcast listener numbers are notoriously hard to quantify. And, since many of these podcasts started recording in 2017, we must use a mix of web and podcast stats to provide a proper estimate.
