A Look Back At 2017 On Stitcher

As we wrap up 2017, we wanted to take a look at what the most listened to podcasts on Stitcher were. First of all, collectively you listened to over 100,000,000 hours of podcasts on our app. That’s over 2 million coast to coast road trips! Amazing. We can’t thank you enough for choosing us as your podcast app.

Okay. Let’s get into it.

There you have it! It’s been a great year for podcasts (and for Stitcher too!). We released an updated iOS app, a brand new Stitcher Skill for Alexa. Plus, we started a slate of our own original podcasts like Katie Couric and Heaven’s Gate.

We truly wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our great listeners and customers, and we can’t wait for you to see what we are working on for next year.
