This is the second in a set of three end-of-year 2020 music stats posts. I published my top songs yesterday and will publish my top albums tomorrow. I keep track of every track and podcast episode I listen to on all digital platforms, including Itunes, Spotify, and YouTube by way of Last.fm scrobbling. This is a list of the artists and podcasts I listened to the most.

*A Spotify Playlist featuring my 50+ top artists is located at the end of this post.*
