Ah, podcasts. Popular again. According to survey data from Edison Research, a growing minority of Americans are listening to podcasts. As of 2016, 21% of Americans age 12 or older say they have listened to a podcast in the past month. This reflects steady incremental growth since 2013, when that share was 12%.
I recently rediscovered podcasts myself for topics like marketing, self-help, marriage and relationships, and more. Today, while looking for nonprofit podcasts, I found them all spread out over the web. It took some time to locate the best ones, so I decided to pull together a solid list for you to have as a resource. Also, I made sure to only include regularly updated podcasts. Enjoy!
