Edison Podcast Metrics is the only podcast measurement service that measures the relative audience size and demographics of all podcasts from all networks in the U.S. It is the only measurement based on actual podcast listening, not downloads, and does not require an opt-in from podcast networks. 

The Edison Podcast Metrics Top 50 Podcasts of Q3 2022 list is derived from data collected continuously Q4 2021 – Q3 2022, from surveying 11,275 podcast consumers ages 18 and older in the U.S. Participants indicate which podcasts they listened to in the past week along with a variety of demographic, psychographic, and purchase behavior information. The results are then coded and analyzed to ascertain the genre and network for each podcast. The relative audience size of each podcast is then calculated and expressed as the percentage of weekly podcast listeners reached by that show.
