Data Finds Women Over the Age of 55 Listen to More Podcasts than Men

According to Edison’s Infinite Dial 2019 report released last week in partnership with Triton Digital, 70% of the US population is familiar with podcasting, up 6% from last year.

Since Edison’s stats are based on U.S. figures, we wanted to add some worldwide insights to the conversation, pulling demographic data from our global network to make comparisons. Based on usage stats from February 2018 and February 2019, we broke the data down based on podcast listening by gender and listening by age to illustrate our angle on the subject.

We found that there’s actually a lot of similarity between our data and Edison Research’s, particularly for the 2019 metrics that both show nearly the exact the same gender balance, highlighting how popular the medium is becoming not only in the States but across the world.

However, the split in 2018 looks a bit more uneven. Last year, we found growth in podcast listening among women had been picking up speed. But Edison’s data was slightly different. In their research, the proportion of women was actually higher in 2018 than in 2019.

Once we began comparing numbers, we thought we’d also take a look at the breakdown of podcast listening by age. When looking at the gender split, podcast listening takes a turn when looking at age groups. 2019 might be the year of the woman, with listening jumping from 41.5% to 44.9% for women, while decreasing from 58.5% to 55.51% for men. Females aged between 55-64 and over 65 have been listening to more podcasts than males in the same age groups. This likely is due to more content being published for a female audience, as shows focused on genres such as true crime surge in popularity.

Looking at age groups from 2019 to 2018, listeners over 65 have increased, as did those between 25-34 and 35-44 years old. Baby boomers and Gen Xers are dominating the podcast industry. If this isn’t proof that the pivot to audio continues, and if you aren’t podcasting now, perhaps you should be.

  6. liothyronine is a manufactured form of the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (t3). it is most commonly used to treat hypothyroidism and myxedema coma. it is generally less preferred than levothyroxine. it can be taken by mouth or by injection into a vein.

    side effects may occur from excessive doses. this may include weight loss, fever, headache, anxiety, trouble sleeping, arrythmias, and heart failure. use in pregnancy and breastfeeding is generally safe. regular blood tests are recommended to verify the appropriateness of the dose being taken.

    liothyronine was approved for medical use in 1956. it is available as a generic medication. a month’s supply in the united kingdom costs the nhs about gb?247 as of 2019. in the united states the wholesale cost of this amount is about us$22.40. in 2017, it was the 252nd most commonly prescribed medication in the united states, with more than one million prescriptions.

    medical uses
    liothyronine is a generally less preferred option to levothyroxine (t4) for people with hypothyroidism. it may be used when there is an impaired conversion of t4 to t3 in peripheral tissues. the dose of liothyronine for hypothyroidism is a lower amount than levothyroxine due it being a higher concentrated synthetic medication. about 25 µg of liothyronine is equivalent to 100 µg of levothyroxine.

    in thyroid cancer or graves’ disease, ablation therapy with radioactive iodine (131i) can be used to remove trace thyroid tissue that may remain after thyroidectomy (surgical excision of the gland). for 131i therapy to be effective, the trace thyroid tissue must be avid to iodine, which is achieved by elevating the person’s tsh levels. for patients taking levothyroxine, tsh may be boosted by discontinuing levothyroxine for 3–6 weeks. this long period of hormone withdrawal is required because of levothyroxine’s relatively long biological half-life, and may result in symptoms of hypothyroidism in the patient. the shorter half-life of liothyronine permits a withdrawal period of two weeks, which may minimize hypothyroidism symptoms. one protocol is to discontinue levothyroxine, then prescribe liothyronine while the t4 levels are falling, and finally stop the liothyronine two weeks before the radioactive iodine treatment.

    liothyronine may also be used for myxedema coma because of its quicker onset of action when compared to levothyroxine. use for the treatment of obesity is not recommended.
