Few pastimes unite Arizonans quite like their shared love of audio content, with the vast majority of Grand Canyon State residents agreeing about their mutual love for one of America’s most polarizing podcast hosts.
Using data from ThePodcasting.org and Google Trends, BetArizona.com took a break from Arizona sports betting and found the most popular podcast in Arizona. Leveraging ThePodcast.org’s ‘Most Popular Podcasts in the U.S.’ list, we then used Google Trends to measure the search volume in the state over the past 12 months.
From those results, it quickly becomes clear The Joe Rogan Experience is Arizona’s No. 1 podcast, with more than 50% of search volume picking the talk show over a host of other well-known options.
Arizona’s Favorite Podcasts
Two Crime Podcasts Make Top 5
The top podcast in Arizona is Spotify’s The Joe Rogan Experience, which has run continuously since 2009 and has racked up more than 2,000 episodes since it first aired in December 2009.
Overall, 56% of search volume went towards the show — Arizona betting apps would call it a huge favorite — as compared to the state’s No. 2 option, Crime Junkie, which gathered 20% of all search volume in Arizona.
According to the latest survey conducted by Edison Research, it seems Arizona’s top 5 clearly follows a national pattern, with Rogan’s podcast being the top choice among American listeners, followed by Crime Junkies, The Daily, This American Life and Call Her Daddy. Arizona’s podcast choices also mirrored the national charts provided by Spotify, which list The Joe Rogan Experience as the No. 1 podcast in America, followed by New Heights With Jason and Travis Kelce, Hot Mess With Alix Earle and Strike Force Five.
