About the number 2 on the list opinions differ. In the US it’s “Jay Sekulow Live”; In the UK the “Reith Lectures” and on Australia it’s “Stuff to Blow Your Mind”. Stuff you Should Know and This American Life are on the top 10, of the most popular podcasts on the three countries. On Australia Stuff you Should Know occupies the third place on the tops, while in the US it goes down to the fifth position. Curiously, This American Life occupies the same position on both the US and Australia’s popular podcasts chart, which is the sixth place.
Video may have killed the radio star, but podcasts are doing the opposite. This niche market doesn’t kill competition of other mediums, on the contrary popular podcasts can be a lever to increase other mediums’ audiences and bring new ideas to the table. For example “This American Life” inspired the television show of the same name on the US. Moreover, half a dozen stories from the podcast are being developed into films. On the other hand, there are radio shows like “Jay Sekulow Live”, “NPR’s Fresh Air” and “Radiolab”, among others, which are available on podcast.
This is why myTuner family is proud to bring innovation to the world. Podcasts by myTuner was the first Podcast app on the Apple TV and myTuner Radio is a popular app that brings, not only popular podcasts, but also amazing radio stations from every genre to every niche.
