Podcast fever is taking over the whole world, it seems. As the end of 2021 approaches, Spotify has unveiled this year’s top five most-listened-to podcasts worldwide on the platform. How many have you tuned in to?

It was already the most-downloaded podcast in the United States in 2020 before joining the streaming platform, and now, “The Joe Rogan Experience” takes the top spot as the most listened-to podcast of 2021 there. Despite its lengthy episodes, lasting between two and three hours, “The Joe Rogan Experience” has found its audience thanks to the 54-year-old comedian’s interviews.


Feminism also features in the top five with Alex Cooper’s “Call Her Daddy.” The podcast tackles raw, sometimes provocative and often relevant topics, spanning subjects like sexuality, freedom and empowerment, while also tackling stereotypes and prejudices. The hit podcast has featured celebrity guests, including “Shameless” star Emma Kenney, as well as comedian Pete Davidson and model Emily Ratajkowski.

Users also tuned in to crime investigations, with the “Crime Junkie” podcast coming in third place. In fifth place comes the New York Times‘ news podcast, “The Daily.” Spotify did not specify the total number of listens for each podcast.


The global top five most-listened-to podcasts of 2021 are:

1. “The Joe Rogan Experience” (Spotify exclusive)

2. “Call Her Daddy” (Spotify exclusive)

3. “Crime Junkie”

4. “TED Talks Daily”

5. “The Daily”
