The data in Insights is a consolidation of all of your show's listens across all platforms. Insights gives you powerful tools to filter and export this data, so you can understand more about your listenership.


To get started, log into Insights directly by clicking here*. Choose your show directly from the list or from the Select Show dropdown. Explore six tabs to find out more about your listens.

  • Overview: Overview helps you identify overall listening data across your whole show.

  • Performance: See how specific episodes perform when stacked against each other over various time-frames.

  • Listener: View the number of unique listeners reached during the last 1-7 days.

  • Podcast Players: Understand where your followers are listening to your show.

  • Location: Use the map to see where your listeners are based.

  • Audience: See when your audience is subscribing, unsubscribing, and which shows you share a common audience with from this tab.

All data displayed is IAB 2.1 certified - Acast is the only company certified across all 4 of the IAB's metrics: downloads, listeners, ad delivery and client-confirmed ad play. In order to qualify as compliant, a download must meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum download: At least 60 seconds of the episode was downloaded

  • User Agent filter: Acast uses the IAB/ABC International Spider & Bots List to remove invalid user agents such as web crawlers

  • IP address filter: Acast uses the TAG Data Center IP list to remove non-human traffic

  • 24-hour window: Only count 1 listen per listener per episode within 24 hours
