Hamish and Andy No 1 on the Australian Podcast Ranker, two debuts in the top 20

The April Triton Australian Podcast Ranker is out with Hamish and Andy No 1 for a record 20th time. There are also two debuts in the top 20 which are a reflection of the nation’s interest in news and current affairs. ABC Top News Stories joined the ranker at No 3 with 376 monthly episodes and more downloads than Hamish and Andy. At No 16 is News Corp and Nova Entertainment’s The Mushroom Cook with journalist Brooke Grebert-Craig going behind the scenes of the lunch served by Erin Patterson in the rural Victorian town of Leongatha that resulted in the deaths of three people.

With all the talk about Kyle and Jackie O in the lead up to their April 29 launch on KIIS 101.1 in Melbourne, their podcast slipped two spots to 9th and with 100K less monthly listeners than March. This is also the first time that all podcasts in the top 10 are Australian. ABC’s Conversations was the only podcast to have more than 2 million downloads (more than 3.4 million), although if April had had one more day in the month No 2’s Casefile True Crime most likely would have too.
