  Affluent Audiences and the Podcast

Tony Incalcatera, SVP, Chief Research Officer, Ipsos Affluent Intelligence
One-in-three affluent adults regularly listens to or watches Podcasts. Those that do, spend an average of four hours per week with their favorites. We will explore who they are, how engaged they are, and what separates them from non-listeners. The insights in this presentation are derived from our Fall 2019 Ipsos Affluent USA study, as well as our deep-dive research on the subject earlier this year.

Getting to Know the American Podcast Consumer

Podcasting has become an increasingly popular news and entertainment outlet which makes it something that should be on every publishers’ radar. In this session MRI-Simmons will help you understand the full picture of the American podcast listener. Learn not only what types of podcasts they listen to and how/where, but also get a deeper dive into who these people really are – their values, attitudes, behaviors, media habits, etc., revealing how the different genres of print and podcast fanship overlap.
