The Entertainment Engine podcast has just recently launched, with some very encouraging podcast statistics with a continued rapid growth rate from the podcast community over the past several years.

So, how many podcasts are there? The last official count had confirmed over 750,000 podcasts on Apple Podcasts.

However, we’ve heard that there are over 1 million podcasts RSS feeds. To properly quantify how popular podcasts are, here are some podcasts statistics.

How Many Podcasts Are There?

In Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in 2018, the company said there were over 555,000 podcasts, including 525,000 active podcasts.

Apple also reported in June 2018 there were over a billion downloads from Apple Podcasts.

However, an indexing tool counted over 800,000 podcasts on Apple as of December 2019.

In 2019, Google Podcasts product manager, Zach Reneau-Weeden tells Discover Pods there are around 2 million podcasts indexed by Google.

According to Nielson, 52% of podcast listeners use iOS, 43% are on Android.
