An Unscientific Map of the Podcast Landscape

I created this graphic after realizing how many hours of my life I spend explaining how many different kinds of podcasts exist right now.



  • This is unscientific. There are not quantitative metrics determining where podcasts exist on the spectrum. This is mostly based on my gut/experience in audio production.
  • There is no value-judgment placed on shows' locations, but I think it's a useful framework for understanding why you might like certain shows and not others.
  • I didn't include every podcast in this graphic. I will not add new podcasts. I will not add your podcast. Sorry.
