The NPR Podcast Directory contains over 600 podcasts from NPR and over 180 NPR member stations. The podcasts are currently not available through the API, however, we do provide a comprehensive OPML file which contains references to all podcasts in the Podcast Directory.
The NPR API supports podcast as an output standard. In the query generator, select the FIELDS tab, and then the radio button for "Podcast" as the Output.
Podcast output follows the RSS standard, with the addition of audio enclosures in mp3 format. These tags appear in the source as < enclosure url="somefile.mp3" >
The podcast output will work with all standard podcast players, allowing a user to subscribe to dynamic content filtered by the parameters set in the query generator.
In accordance with our digital rights agreements, not all program content is available for podcasts generated through the API.
