Among the main findings:
* The percentage of Americans who have ever listened to an audio podcast is 29%
* Similarly, 26% of Americans 12+ have ever viewed a video podcast
* The podcast audience is significantly more likely to have viewed television programming through non-traditional means
* One in four podcast consumers plug their MP3 players or smartphones into their car audio system “nearly every day”

My Comment on this report:
Is there a difference between subscribing to a YouTube channel and subscribing to a podcast? I think they are the same….except you can’t get the videos from the iTunes store unless the content creator makes them available. But ‘technically’ speaking having a YouTube channel is a video podcast.
