Podtrac has released its podcast ranker for June 2018. Overall, the chart showed few changes from its May iteration. The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe and In the Dark both dropped out of the ranking, while politics show Pod Save America and the true crime stories of Sword and Scale entered the list for June. This American Life from NPR led the ranking for yet another month, while the New York Times’ The Daily took the second spot once again.
Podtrac recently issued a statement affirming its compliance with the IAB 2.0 Podcast Measurement Technical Guidelines. “Podtrac, the most used podcast audience measurement system, and the audience counts for the thousands of publishers who use it, have always been consistent with the new guidelines,” the company said.
