Mostly young and university educated people younger than 35 years of age are listening to podcasts in Slovakia. They compose more than half of respondents who participated in an anonymous poll carried out by the Sme daily in early August.

The poll received 544 answers and more than 200 comments with various recommendations.

The poll suggests that the second highest group of podcast fans is composed by people aged 35-44 years, followed by listeners from age groups of 45-54 years and 18-24 years.

The Sme poll confirms that the popularity of podcasts in Slovakia is on the rise. It suggested that three quarters of respondents also listen to more than one podcast, either Slovak or foreign ones.
