2019 has shaped up to a big year for podcasting. With the $300 acquisition of Gimlet Media and Anchor by Spotify, the simple concept of streaming audio content on demand on any device over the internet is finally gaining mainstream worldwide. The total ad revenue grew to $600 million in 2018, attracting advertisers and technology companies like Google, Castbox and Stitcher who are in the business of hosting and distribution podcasts. The next stage of growth will come from the audience who have never listened to a podcast before, such as 65% of the global audience, from mobile savvy countries such as China and India.
