Top 5 Podcast Genres

Podcasts have started to heat up in the last several years. This is no surprise if you read my previous blog on why you should be listening to podcasts. There are currently just over 2 million podcasts out in the world, which seems like a lot. However, when you compare it to the fact that there are 600 million blogs out there, podcasting is still in its infancy. 

If you have been thinking about starting to listen to podcasts but aren’t sure where to start, I will share the current top 5 genres to help get you started into the wonderful world of podcasting. 

  1. Comedy
  2. News
  3. True Crime 
  4. Sports
  5. Health & Fitness
These genres will get you started listening to podcasts. I listen to several podcasts, and I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t mention the entrepreneur and business podcasts are great genres too! If you need some true-crime suggestions, check out my top 5 here. You can also check out the top 100 podcasts on apple to help guide you on your listening choices. There are many different genres and niches to explore, what are you waiting for get listening today.
