Kids and Podcasts
Podcasts are also becoming a big part of children's media consumption. 36% of 9 to 14s have ever listened to a podcast, and 19% listen to one each week. 80% of kids are listening to podcasts at home and 23% are listening on the move in the family car - in fact when asked where do you mostly listen - 77% say at home . They also listen a bit differently to Mum and Dad, where 68% listen on the smartphone. For kids it's 46% tuning in on a phone, but 20% listen on a tablet, 20% on the computer and 7% through a games console - showing that they're truly multi-platform!
