10 Actors Whose Awesome Podcasts Are Worth Listening To
The podcast industry has grown exponentially since it started in the early 2000s. Like talk radio, podcasts feature audio listening opportunities that typically fall into certain formats, like news, interviews, or storytelling. Unlike the radio, podcasts can be listened to at the subscriber’s discretion, and similar to traditional TV series, they tend to release episodes weekly. The industry has seen a surge in popularity over the past five years, doubling the monthly active podcast listener from $45.8 million in 2015 to $105.6 million in 2020.
It’s no wonder then that actors who often already have a strong social media presence and fanbase are flocking to the medium. All of these actors have great stories of their own to tell, but instead, they use their platform to interview notable guests from many different industries. Some of these podcasters are B-list celebrities who have more time on their hands to dedicate to their shows, while others were simply inspired by the medium and its format that allows for more in-depth and meaningful conversations. With the podcast phenomenon steadily growing, many are looking for an entry point and what better than one hosted by a notable actor.
