NPR and iHeartMedia continue their tug-of-war for the lead in Podtrac’s publisher ranker, and both have several shows on the analytics company’s latest podcast chart. iHeartMedia’s shows in the top 20 are Stuff You Should Know and The Ron Burgundy Podcast. NPR has eight titles on the ranker, notably Up First in fourth.
ESPN’s Fantasy Focus Football made the chart, and Sword and Scale from Kast Media also made a return in September. The Daily, the weekday news podcast from The New York Times, continues its reign over the top of the ranking.
