Almost a quarter of all Londoners said they listened to podcasts while commuting, making England’s capital most heavily dependent on audio shows during the trip to work.
Enjoying a podcast while out and about is a popular hobby for a lot of Brits, and in Northern Ireland almost a third of respondents will listen to a show while walking their dog.
Max Taylor, Consumer Director at Vodafone, which commissioned the study, said: “The huge growth of podcasts during the last decade has been nothing short of spectacular.
“Part of their appeal is you can listen to your favourite shows from wherever you are, as well as being able to stream them whilst you’re on the move – whether that’s popping to the shops or whilst on the school run.
The UK’s consumption of podcasts is on the up too – as many as 42 per cent of respondents said they listen to podcasts more now than before the coronavirus pandemic – with just seven per cent saying they listen to audio shows less.
Vodafone’s Max Taylor added: “A huge number of us listen to podcasts when we’re out and about.
“Our love for comedy podcasts, as shown in the research, proves shows we’re a nation that loves a good laugh.
”With Vodafone’s award-winning network for reliability and our exclusive music partner Spotify, you can be confident you'll be able to listen to your favourite podcasts wherever you are.”
