The consumption of podcasts continues to grow globally. It is a great way for creators to communicate directly with an unlimited number of listeners. Among the main reasons for the growth in popularity is the quick response of content producers to social trends and the ability to deliver clear and understandable content to their audience. Moreover, podcasts have become more and more popular as they allow their audience to combine podcast listening with everyday tasks.
