Triton Digital®, the global technology and services leader to the digital audio, podcast, and broadcast radio industries, announced today the release of the latest Canada Podcast Ranker for the October 2023 reporting period (October 2, 2023 – October 29, 2023), as measured by Triton’s Podcast Metrics measurement service.
For this reporting period, the top three Canada originated French-language podcasts included Le Radiojournal (CBC/Radio-Canada) again at #1, Les chroniques de Pierre-Yves McSween (Cogeco Media) again at #2, and Richard Martineau (QUB) again at #3.
The top three Canada originated English-language podcasts included Front Burner (CBC/Radio-Canada) again at #1, The World This Hour (CBC/Radio-Canada) again at #2, and World Report (CBC/Radio-Canada) again at #3.
Yet again, the top ranked podcast overall was Dateline NBC (NBCUniversal News Group). SiriusXM Podcast Network earned the #1 spot again on the Top Networks Report with 4.20M Average Weekly Downloads, followed by Wondery Network again at #2 with 2.60M Average Weekly Downloads, and CBC/Radio-Canada again at #3 with 2.17M Average Weekly Downloads.
The top ranked podcasts had several debuts in October including TED Talks Daily (Soundrise/PRX), The Moth (Soundrise/PRX), The Broski Report with Brittany Broski (Audioboom), Normal Gossip (Soundrise/Radiotopia), and more. Le ripou des Hells (QUB) and La rencontre Dutrizac et Dumont (QUB) debuted for the originated French-language list.
Our Canada Podcast Ranker is available on our interactive website, www.TritonRankers.com, for an easy way to navigate monthly performance trends and filter by podcast category, Sales Network, and time period.
NPR is temporarily excluded from the rankers this month due to a planned data collection migration. They will return to the rankers once the migration is complete.
For the month of October podcast downloads are down 4.3% compared to September. This can partially be attributed to the release of Apple iOS 17 and that Apple podcast episodes that are older than seven days will no longer be considered “new” and automatically downloaded. You can read more about Apple automatic download behavior changes here.
The Top Sales Network Report is ranked by Average Weekly Downloads, in accordance with v2.1 of the IAB Podcast Technical Measurement Guidelines. Participating Sales Networks include content owners/creators and sales representation organizations. Certified by the IAB Tech Lab, Triton’s Podcast Metrics eliminates inconsistent measurement practices and self-reported data, providing content creators, marketers, media buyers, and the audio industry at large with validated and transparent podcast audience data.
Any sales network or publisher with an audience in Canada is eligible to participate in the Canada Podcast Report. To learn more, contact: email@example.com.
