2022 in review: The most-listened to Light Reading Podcast episodes

When looking back on a year of podcasts, it's clear that our readers want to hear from big service providers and big-time technology execs. They also seem to enjoy Light Reading reporters recapping what they saw and heard, why it matters and what might happen next.

When we sat down to assemble this list, we … oh, you don't care, do you? We all know we're putting out a list so we can keep the site looking spiffy while our news team drinks its weight in eggnog. Our boss isn't going to read any of this copy, but we have to make it look good, so we'll write two more paragraphs and then get to the list.

We could do less, but we're not sure that would satiate the skimmers. But a nice, four-paragraph intro provides a good bit of misdirection while we're spending the day watching college football and seeing how high we can stack some leftover Christmas ham sandwiches.

While you're here, please do yourself a favor and check out our podcast feed; you can get it directly from Apple Podcasts in the embedded player below. The list we're leaving you with today includes our most listened-to podcasts this year, but there are more than 500 podcasts on the feed in all. Thanks for supporting our podcasts and feel free to leave your AirPods in while you take an "after-Christmas-sandwich nap."
