Florida: This Is Our Most Popular Podcast
With the current writer’s strike, there’s potential for many new streaming programs to be delayed, leading fans to seek alternate entertainment. The Waycroft recently highlighted the top podcasts in every state. The most popular podcast in Florida focuses on a sport where the state has seen much success in 2023.
Over the past three years, The Waycroft noticed a significant increase in podcast popularity. Moreover, it became apparent that after the pandemic, people were expanding their entertainment interests beyond just a binge of “Netflix and chill.”
“We collected Google search data in the U.S. over the past 12 months on the first 50 podcasts on Apple Podcasts’ Top 100 chart. Then we crunched the numbers and uncovered the podcasts people searched for the most across the country,” they explain.
So what is the most popular podcast in Florida for 2023?
From The Ringer, Chris Vernon and Kevin O’Connor release two to three episodes per week where they analyze everything happening in the NBA. The Missmatch covers the news, trends, and transactions in professional basketball.

Demandsage reports that so far in 2023 there have been 464.7 million podcast listeners, exceeding the 424.2 million listeners from 2022.
