There’s something wonderful about listening to radio soaked in that soothing NPR gravy. The public radio powerhouse’s new NPR One app keeps a personalised stream of lovely stories pumping into your ears at all times.
NPR One is a curated stream of local, and national news mixed in with other programming like segments from On the Media and Radiolab. It’s like a Pandora for public radio. Just hit play and you’ll hear stories. A bit like switching on the dial in your car and letting experienced producers take the reins.
The new app for iOS and Android appears to be based on NPR’s Infinite Player experiment (as pointed out by Ahmed Al Omran) , which was a wonderful bookmark destination for a never-ending cascade of stories. And it’s free! So if even if you’re just a casual listener of public radio — or just even remotely interested — there’s no reason not to give it a try. [iTunes and Google Play via NPR One]
