A recent study from LinkedIn showed that podcasts were listened to at least once a week by 42% of 18-34 year olds.

With the explosion in podcast listening comes an equivalent explosion in the number of podcasts.

Podcasts are now available on every topic, for every niche, and about, well, pretty much everything you can imagine – and there are more new ones every day.
