Our App

Our new and improved app for iOS and Android gives you access to our entire archive. You can download an unlimited number of episodes for offline listening. You can also bookmark episodes to listen to later, and track your progress through our archive by marking stories as heard.

We have more than 700 episodes, so use our new search and filter functions to find your favorite stories by topic, contributor, and year. 

We worked with the fine folks at Black Pixel to build our app. Studio Rodrigo did our mobile designs, and Rich Orris handled the web development. We appreciate any feedback: [email protected].

On the Radio

This American Life airs on more than 500 stations across the country, reaching 2.2 million listeners. PRX, the Public Radio Exchange, delivers the show to stations. We mostly air on the weekend, but times differ. NPR's station finder can link you to your local public radio station. We also air on the CBC in Canada and Radio National in Australia.
