NPR: Pocket Casts acquired by NPR, other public radio stations, and This American Life

NPR: Pocket Casts acquired by NPR, other public radio stations, and This American Life. “Pocket Casts, widely considered to be one of the best mobile apps for podcast listening, has been acquired by a collective group that includes NPR, WNYC Studios, WBEZ Chicago, and This American Life. ‘This unprecedented collaboration furthers public radio’s leading role as an innovator in audio discovery and distribution, while ensuring the continued support and growth of one of the most popular listening platforms on the market,’ the companies said in a press release announcing the news. That team of stations and podcast producers are responsible for some of the format’s biggest hits like This American Life (duh), Serial, Radiolab, and Planet Money.” Pocket Casts is my favorite podcast app; I use it every day and I desperately hope the acquisition doesn’t mess it up.
