We live in a world of choices: whether you’re browsing grocery store aisles, or deciding what to listen to on your commute home. Sometimes it’s fun to pick out what you like, and sometimes it’s exhausting. We’re here to help. The Public Radio Player has tons of live station streams and on-demand programs for you to choose from. But when you want something new — you just aren’t sure what — we’ve got a list of featured content waiting in the wings. Choose the “Featured” tab from either the Live or the On Demand screens.
Here at Public Radio Exchange, which leads the Player app development, we listen to public radio all day long. And we hear everything: from beloved talk shows like Fresh Air to award-winning documentaries from the Third Coast International Audio Festival, not to mention tons of creative programs from independent producers all across the country. We’ll be rotating fresh finds into the Featured On Demand list, so you can find your new favorite radio show, in a snap.
Newly featured this week:
Hidden Kitchens from The Kitchen Sisters
“Hidden Kitchens, the duPont Award-winning radio series on NPR’s Morning Edition, explores the world of unexpected, below the radar cooking, legendary meals and eating traditions how communities come together through food.”
