The Ethan Allen Institute is excited to present the preview of our new video podcast EAI’s “Dialogues with Meg Hansen.” Our goal is to present thought-provoking conversations about the most consequential issues we face today with guests that are on the vanguard of their respective disciplines.
Podcast listeners have a median age of 34 years — younger than that of broadcast radio (where the median age is 47 years) and network television (57 years). The percentage of monthly podcast listeners in the 12-to-34-age category grew from 27 percent in 2017 to 49 percent in 2020.
Indeed, these numbers will keep growing. Podcasting is booming. With this project, we aim to expand EAI’s reach especially to a younger demographic. It will also strengthen our ability to promptly engage with and drive the news cycle.
Meg Hansen serves on the Board of the Ethan Allen Institute. She previously led a Vermont health policy think tank, and ran for state-level public office in 2020.
