Edison Podcast Metrics Finds Listening to Kelce Brothers’ Podcast Skyrockets in Recent Weeks  

Somerville, NJ  (December 6, 2023)  According to newly-released Edison Podcast Metrics™ data from Edison Research, the podcast “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce,” has skyrocketed in listening over the last two months. Since Travis’ romance with Taylor Swift became public, the show has experienced a staggering four-and-a-half times increase in weekly reach among podcast listeners age 13 and older in the U.S.  

The influx of Swifties appears to have contributed to these numbers. Not only has the high-profile romance between Kelce and Swift helped grow the show’s weekly reach, but it has also significantly changed the gender breakdown of the show’s listeners. Before the pairing, the show’s listening base was 32% female, now the much-larger audience is 50% women. ‘’’New Heights’ is a perfect example of how big pop culture moments can mean major success for related podcasts,” said Edison Research Manager of Research Salma Aly.
