Device wise listnership for MLFT Podcast


We launched Baalgatha as a beta over WhatsApp in May 2016 with a group of 50 parents, mostly with children under 8 years of age. That puts the listener profile in the 25-45 age group, mostly (Sec A India) and NRI. Since then, our core audience has largely remained the same. When we launched Myths, Legends and Fairytales of India (TG: Pre-teens, typically a Baalgatha listener who is 8 + now, or older sibling of a Baalgatha listener) - the listener profiles remained the same. That is why show-wise breakup for Baalgatha English and MLFT are quite similar.

For regional languages, Baalgatha Hindi listener ship obviously has more Hindi speaking Tier II city percentage.

Summing it all up:

One of the challenges every podcaster faces is, "How to find and grow your podcast audience?" While we have been able to grow our audience organically over the years, our focus in coming months will be on scaling up this growth.
