Podcasts are everywhere. According to one study, 80 million Americans listened to at least one podcast weekly in 2021, up 24% from the previous year. While the pandemic has certainly contributed to podcast growth, the medium was already on the rise in 2019.
At Wine Enthusiast, we’re honored to produce the biweekly Wine Enthusiast Podcast. Hosted by Managing Editor Lauren Buzzeo, the Wine Enthusiast Podcast explores everything related to drinks culture, from mezcal to rosé trends to the current state of craft lagers. Guests include artists, activists, winemakers, brewers and entertaining experts.
In 2021, our most listened to podcasts spanned broad topics. Looking to revisit an old favorite or listen to something you might have missed? Tune into our top five podcasts of the year.
