Triton Digital’s Podcast Ranker for December 2023 has been released, with Casefile True Crime taking the spot in both the Top 100 Ranker and Top 100 All-Australian Ranker.

The true crime podcast racked up 583,660 monthly listeners and over 1.6 million monthly downloads in December, jumping from second to finish the year in first place.

Mamamia Out Loud rose two spots to second, tallying 541,414 monthly listeners and over 1.5 million monthly downloads. Hamish & Andy, which was previously number one from May until November, dropped to third with 531,923 monthly listeners and over 1.2 million monthly downloads.

Shameless fell to fourth with 481,030 monthly listeners and The Imperfects rose to fifth with 423,520 monthly listeners.

ARN/iHeartMedia, LiSTNR (SCA) and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) remained at first, second and third in the Top Publishers rankings. ARN/iHeartMedia led the way in monthly listeners with 4,044,256 to go along with over 14 million monthly downloads, while the ABC totalled 21,114,376 monthly downloads, the highest for December.

ARN’s head of digital audio, Corey Layton, says 2023 was an exceptional year for iHeart, the team and incredible partners.

"In 2024 we'll be delivering much more as Australian listeners and brands continue to lean into the world of podcasts," he says.

SCA executive head of LiSTNR podcasts, Grant Tothill, says it was an extraordinary year for LiSTNR in 2023, as new formats and titles were launched and more seasons of popular podcasts which has attracted Australia’s largest audience to the network.

"We have an exciting slate of podcasts planned for the year and advertisers will have the opportunity to engage with listeners like never before,” he says.
