Top 100 US Podcasts (Apple Podcasts Top Charts)

Disclosure: Links to other sites may be affiliate links that generate us a small commission at no extra cost to you.

This is a list of the top 100 podcasts in the United States on Apple Podcasts (iTunes). It should automatically update every few days.

Keep in mind, the Apple Podcast charts have been reported to be based on new subscribers, weighted for recency. That means that download numbers don’t necessarily align with this chart.

Want to start your own podcast? Here are the best podcast hosting sites – I use and recommend Buzzsprout.
