We’re baking a cake in the shape of a microphone. Analysts at eMarketer expect the total reach of podcasting in the U.S. to hit 105.6 million listeners this year. Guess which state clocks in the most listening!

We wish we had this growing up. PRX, a public media organization, has created TRAX, a curated network of free podcasts and multimedia for audiences ages 9–13. Shows cover friendship, mental health, wellness, and race, personality, school, and more.

We cue up these beach listens. Meredith Corporation, the legacy print and digital media company, are bringing four popular magazine titles to the audio space. This summer, their launching spinoffs of Allrecipes, PARENTS, Southern Living, and Travel + Leisure.
