Highlights

NPR podcasts popular programs such as Car Talk, Fresh Air from WHYY, Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me! and All Songs Considered; thematic aggregations such as Books or Science; and podcast-original offerings including It’s All Politics, Planet Money (led the iTunes ‘Top 100’ list barely one month after launching), and NPR Playback (a 25-years-ago-this month trip through the NPR radio archives).

The NPR.org API Query Generator offers users the capability to create their own custom podcast feeds of NPR and NPR station content, based on virtually any aggregation (or combination of aggregations) in the API; this functionality draws upon over 250,000 eligible stories housed in the NPR.org archives.

The NPR Podcast Directory showcases the broad variety of podcasts (over 625 as of December 2008) produced by NPR and other public radio organizations nationwide.
