Podtrac releases November podcast ranker, with The Daily landing on top

Podtrac has published its ranker of the top podcasts for November 2018, which includes the company’s recently adopted verification labels. Fourteen of the top twenty shows of November are taking advantage of Podtrac’s verified platform.

The Daily from New York Times was the month’s top show, ousting Serial from the lead spot. Serial came second followed by This American Life. Dr. Death, the Wondery show that topped Podtrac’s list of the most-downloaded new podcasts of 2018, re-appeared on the November ranking at No. 16. Dirty John and TED Talks Daily both returned to the ranker after missing out in October.
