Meanwhile, Audiobloom’s Casefile True Crime podcast had 922,162 monthly listeners last month and 2,244,927 monthly downloads.

The boys previously joked to Mumbrella that if they ever slip from the top spot of the Australian Podcast Ranker that they’d ‘quit’ podcasting. 

‘Well we only ever do podcasts for awards, rankers, status,’ Andy quipped. 

‘So obviously we’ll quit,’ he added.

He added on a more serous note: ‘We’ve just been lucky that so many people listen to us, so we’re grateful for that. We know that, as I think we mentioned in the press release, if you didn’t listen, it would just be two guys hanging out in an expensive studio.’

Hamish and Andy have had incredible success not only with their podcast but with their career over the years. 

They first met in their student days at the University of Melbourne and went on to host the radio drive show Hamish and Andy on the Hit Network for years.

In 2011, the show was cut down to one day a week so the boys could focus on other parts of their career. 

That same year, they branched into TV with their Gap Year series and later their True Story show. 

They’ve also had successful solo projects, including Andy becoming the host of The Hundred with Andy Lee and Hamish hosting Lego Masters. 

Andy previously said that above all else, their ‘friendship is paramount’.

‘As soon as we met, we started hanging out and pretty much haven’t stopped since. To then have someone turn around and say, ”You two being mates is really important to our company”, well, it’s kind of funny,’ he said.
